Alvin Kamara went absolutely bonkers in this game.
Given Brees’ arm strength, the team opts to give quite a few looks to Kamara. They give him screens, run him routes underneath, or just straight up hand him the ball. Each way he destroyed the Packers. He had a career-high 117 all-purpose yards in the first half.
Kamara continued that dominance in the second half, ending the game with 197 all-purpose yards and 13 receptions. On 14 targets, they spread him around and helped make him virtually unguardable.
This 52-yard run is all you really to know about how well Kamara played against the Packers.
While Marshon Lattimore made a few big plays for the defense, it felt like Malcolm Jenkins was all over the field. Jenkins and Demario Davis were the emotional leaders for this team, trying to get the team to play their hardest.
Jenkins ended with a team-high nine tackles and seven solo tackles mixed in there. He had one of the team’s three quarterback hits and one of the team’s three tackles for a loss as well. It was a dominant performance from the veteran safety.
The Saints clearly have things to work on. Their two-game losing streak should be snapped as they’ll draw Detroit next weekend.
