Callaway went off the rails, totaling five catches for 104 yards and two touchdowns, wowing not just Saints fans but the entire NFL. Not only did he put up monster numbers but the way he caught the touchdown passes were just mesmerizing as both touchdowns were defensive pass interference.
The first touchdown capped off a gem of a series for Jameis Winston, whose touchdown pass gave him a perfect 4-for-4 on that opening drive.
If that touchdown wasn’t enough for people, Callaway dazzled again not long after with another beauty of a throw from his quarterback.
Everyone has taken notice of Saints WR Marquez Callaway
Prior to this game, Saints fans were talking Callaway up and now the rest of the NFL knows who he is and what he can do. The analysts during the broadcast were noting that this was Callaway’s first 100-yard game since he did it against Missouri during his college years.
At this point, Callaway is a lock to start at receiver and is probably going to be the WR1 come the regular season. Once Michael Thomas comes back, the Saints will be set up pretty well at receiver with him and Callaway kicking butt and taking names.
With two excellent touchdowns on his resumé in this game, the rest of the league has definitely taken notice and Marquez Callaway is no longer a secret.
