The 2018 NFL Pro Bowl is in the books, and now the question remains: If a Pro Bowl games takes place on national television and no one really cares enough to watch it, did it really happen?
In any event, the New Orleans Saints were heavily represented in the game on both sides of the ball and with the coaching staff, so it’s good to see the players have good games.
Drew Brees went 7/9 with the Saints lone passing TD on the day, and was the only NFC quarterback who didn’t turn the ball over (Russell Wilson was intercepted with Jared Goff was the victim of a strip sack). Brees’s TD pass was to a WR from the divisional round opponent for the Saints, Adam Theilen of the Minnesota Vikings.

Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara both failed to find the endzone, with the pair only totaling 70 total offense yards. Cam Jordan and Marshon Lattimore finished with three total tackles between them, but no sacks or interceptions were recorded from the talented tandem.
The true superstars from the New Orleans Saints who shined during the Pro Bowl game were the unlikely trio of Brees boys. No, not Drew, but his kids.
The NFC would go on to blow a 17-point lead in the Pro Bowl (wait, how many Pro Bowlers came from the Atlanta Falcons?), but it was definitely a “win” for the Brees family.
