The New Orleans Saints won their Week 11 matchup against the Falcons, and there are a few players who had snap counts that may surprise you.

Looking back, Sean Payton may have made the right decision starting Taysom Hill against the Falcons, but it still has Saints fans wondering what an offense led by Jameis Winston may look like.

The result of the team’s Week 11 matchup with the Falcons was the extending of their then six-game winning streak. Now 8-2, the Saints have won seven straight, a stretch that has included a win over the red hot Bucs.

Against the 49ers in Week 10, Drew Brees went down with a collapsed lung and multiple fractured ribs. He was sent to the IR and is expected to be back before the end of the season. No Brees will shake up the team drastically, sending some players onto the field and taking a few others off.

The Saints played a completely different style, one more focused on the run. Payton’s Saints did run the ball over 35 times, having more run attempts than pass attempts. It worked though as the Saints came away with a 24-9 victory.

But, is it sustainable? That is still up in the air. For now, let’s dive into three odd snap counts that we saw in the team’s Week 11 victory over Atlanta.
