Saints vs. Cardinals: Gifs from the Game

New, comments

Check out these clips from the Saints week 1 game against Arizona.

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Hey, Saints fans! Welcome back to the Gifs from the Game series where we look at notable and interesting clips from Saints games. This week, the Saints traveled to Tempe to take on Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals.

Both Ingram and rookie Damian Swann were spectacular. Pat Pete more or less took Brandin Cooks out of the game, Coleman was spotty (at best), and Zach Hocker is legit becoming a fantasy kicker. The Saints got no real pressure on Palmer, and Breaux, despite playing tough, drew a slew of penalties. Gotta bridge the gap from the CFL to the NFL, Breaux.

The Saints faced a formidable defense and respectable offense and hung tight until the David Johnson TD late in the game. Here's to a better match against the Bucs.

As always, let the page load and gifs might need a couple repeats to get up to speed. Enjoy!
