NOLA Saints Winners

Alvin Kamara

After a rough outing at Carolina (and everyone had a rough outing that week), Kamara has bounced back in a big way. He was dominant on Sunday and it’s puzzling why the Saints didn’t go to him even more with their offense struggling in the first half.

Kamara finished the day with 26 carries for 120 yards, leading the team in rushing and putting the offense on his back throughout the afternoon. He didn’t get involved in the passing game, but he did more than enough on the ground.

Taysom Hill

It was the Taysom Hill show on Sunday and this team continues to get their offensive weapon into the action and making the most of his opportunities. He accounted for 63 yards combined between the passing game, rushing game, and receiving game.

Hill bulldozed his way in for two rushing touchdowns and on one of those touchdown runs, he trucked several different defenders. He was putting the Giants defense on edge and aside from an ugly interception that shouldn’t have occurred, Hill was easily the star of the show.
