Winner: Lil’Jordan Humphrey
It’s good to finally see Lil’Jordan Humphrey get involved on offense. The former Texas product finished this game with two catches for 49 yards and a touchdown. Humphrey was second in receiving yards and was the first Saint to find the end zone on Thursday, which not many people would have predicted. He’s definitely a winner this week.
Winner: Nick Vannett
While the drive unfortunately ended with an interception, there was a HUGE play in the second quarter when the offense was storming down the field. Nick Vannett had a massive play on that possession, taking a short dump-off from Hill and running 30 yards down the field with it to put the Saints on the DAL 26. Vannett hasn’t been active for more than a few weeks but it’s good to see him making plays.
Winner: Juwan Johnson
Sticking with the tight ends, Juwan Johnson might have only had one reception but it went for 27 yards and put NOLA at midfield. Unfortunately, Johnson was injured after the play but he and Vannett showed that they can handle tight end duties while Adam Trautman is out.
