Week 1 of the preseason for the New Orleans Saints was an exciting one. We finally got to see QB Derek Carr in action, who threw a touchdown pass to WR Keith Kirkwood in the opening series of the game. While Carr only had brief playing time in the 1st quarter, he went 6 of 8 for 70 yards and one TD.
3 quarters later, rookie kicker Blake Grupe would kick a 31-yard field goal as time expired to give the Saints a 26-24 victory over the Chiefs.
Carr said of his 1st game in New Orleans, “It may look weird, but it felt right. I just feel refreshed. I feel rejuvenated. And to put that uniform on and come out and be a Saint, it felt really good.”
