The New Orleans Saints have now rolled off wins against the Green Bay Packers and New England Patriots in their first three games. New Orleans went into Gillette Stadium on Sunday and beat New England 28-13.
Running back Alvin Kamara had a busy day with 24 carries for 89 yards and three catches for 29 yards and a touchdown. Quarterback Jameis Winston went 13-of-21 passing for 128 yards and two touchdowns.
Think it's more to do with Paulson Adebo. He's been great. Malcolm Jenkins said after the game that he's as settled of a rookie that he's ever seen, and I think Jenkins knows a thing or two. https://t.co/gT4UAKbu8A— John Hendrix (@JohnJHendrix) September 27, 2021
Paulson Adebo, a third-round cornerback out of Stanford, started alongside Marshon Lattimore and played all 72 defensive snaps. He recorded five tackles and remains the team’s third-leading tackler with 15 total.
Adebo really seems to be paying off for the Saints. Ranked outside of Pro Football Focus’ top 10 cornerbacks headed into the 2021 NFL Draft, he’s already established himself as a weekly starter.
2nd-roud pick Pete Werner saw 35 defensive snaps at linebacker and recorded two tackles. 28th overall defensive end Payton Turner played 32 snaps but made little impact without recording a stat.
Sixth-round offensive tackle Landon Young saw limited action with just three snaps in jumbo sets.
New Orleans will return to the Caesars Superdome for their first official home game against the New York Giants. The Saints’ season opener against the Packers was relocated to Jacksonville, FL due to Hurricane Ida. New Orleans will look to keep things rolling in Week 4.
