Hey, Saints fans! Welcome back to the gifs from the game series where we look at notable and interesting clips from Saints games. Here we have a trove of clips from the Saints second preseason match against the New England Patriots, including Cooks basically just doing whatever he wants, Kikaha hitting many people hard with his body, KRob doing his thing (seriously, this guy has maintained a really high standard for Saints RBs), some nice plays by the defense and more!
In case you didn't catch the first in this series, check out part 1 here against the Ravens. Against the Patriots, both the Saints starting offense (sans Spiller) and defense (sans entire secondary and Ellerbee) played very well, the final score and going 0/3 in 2-pt conversion attempts notwithstanding. Below, check out the gifs from the game.
As with part 1, allow the page to load and give each gif a few breaths to get up to speed.
