New Orleans Saints MVP

Pete Werner

Werner had terrific coverage at the beginning of the third quarter when Washington could have tied the game on a 3rd and goal attempt. In fact, Werner had terrific coverage all game.

The 2021 second-rounder led the team with a career-high 13 combined tackles. He’s been slowly easing into the Saints’ defense, gaining more snaps and learning from one of the best to play the game: Demario Davis.

Werner just might live up to expectations this season.
