Winners

Derek Schouman

This was the perfect time for Schouman to show out. He led the team in receiving with 6 receptions for 74 yards and showed good hands and speed. It's gonna be tough for the Saints to cut this guy. Official Status: Contract terminated.

Travaris Cadet

Cadet is doing everything he can to stay on this team. He had 15 carries for 57 yards and 8 receptions for 44 yards. The only blemish on the night was his fumble. It's going to be very interesting what the Saints decide to do with Cadet. I highly doubt that they would cut Ivory or keep 5 backs on the roster. But, there is a good chance that Cadet could get swiped up from waivers. Official Status: Made 53-man roster.

Garrett Hartley

Hartley officially solidified his kicking spot. He attempted both of the Saints' field goals and made them. Official Status: Made 53-man roster.

Greg Camarillo

Another great performance by a guy that is pushing to make the final roster. He had three receptions for 43 yards. Camarillo might be able to sneak into the 6th receiver spot. Official Status: Contract terminated.

Thomas Morstead

The Leg looks like he is in midseason form. He had four punts and averaged 40.3 yards per. His longest went 57 yards. Official Status: Made 53-man roster.

Losers

Sean Canfield

Canfield was able to make a handful of pretty good throws throughout the night, completing 69 percent of his passes for 288 yards, but overall his performance was sloppy. He didn't have any touchdown passes and had three of the Saints' four turnovers: two interceptions and one fumble. Official Status: Waived.

Nick Toon

In Toon's only preseason game, he had 2 receptions for 6 yards. He also dropped a touchdown pass that hit him in the hands. I guess we can give Toon the benefit of the doubt since he has been injured, but it is still disappointing to see such a poor performance by the fourth-round draft pick. Official Status: Placed on injured reserve.

The Offensive Line

Another spotty performance by the big men up front. They allowed three sacks and a lot of other rushers were able to get into the backfield.

The Backup Offense

Yes, the offense consisted of backups, but they couldn't get anything going all night. They couldn't muster up a touchdown, had a 14 percent third down conversion rate, and gained a mere 4.8 yards per play. Good thing we won't be seeing a lot of these guys this season.
