The New Orleans Saints were able to do just enough to get a win over the Detroit Lions, despite falling in an early 14-0 hole. The Saints were already down multiple starters on both sides of the ball, and they continued to lose players to injury during the game, with Deonte Harris and Ryan Ramczyk both leaving the game at various points.
After initially falling behind 14-0, the Saints put up 35 unanswered points to win 35-29. With that the Saints were able to improve to 2-2, and here are some of the best reactions from #SaintsTwitter after the game:
No Michael Thomas, Jared Cook, Janoris Jenkins, Marshon Lattimore, Andrus Peat, or Marcus Davenport.— Canal St. Chronicles (@SaintsCSC) October 4, 2020
Lose Deonte Harris (no word yet) and Ryan Ramczyk (concussion) in the game.
Covid scare last night kept the team up. And the #Saints still get the W.
Huge to be 2-2 right now.

Tre’Quan definitely didn’t. Caught all four of his targets. I don’t think Sanders did either. https://t.co/l6T2BijIy2— Luke Johnson (@ByLukeJohnson) October 4, 2020
Tre’Quan Smith’s route-running is so much improved.— Andrew Bell (@AndrewBell_98) October 4, 2020
Check the deep out on 3rd down at the top of the screen. He runs out of the screen-view for a split second, but the defender has outside leverage, and he still manages to break outward and create separation pic.twitter.com/gRR6QuJVAy
What did @Cantguardmike text Tre'Quan Smith before the game?— Canal St. Chronicles (@SaintsCSC) October 4, 2020
"Ball out, bro."
I think he did just that.
You take this W and get on the plane.— Kevin (@KevinWashJr) October 4, 2020
