Rookie Tre’Quan Smith Played Spectacular

New Orleans Saints rookie wideout had an impressive game finishing with 10 receptions after being targeted 13 times for 157 receiving yards and one touchdown. The Saints have been needing some much-needed help at the wide receiver two spots and it appears that they may have found it in Smith.  

Smith who was drafted in the third round in this past year’s draft has excellent speed and is able to stretch the opponent’s defense. Having Michael Thomas is a plus and adding another weapon to this dangerous Saints offense is going to be scary once the playoffs come. 

Saints skill positions are already elite with Thomas, Smith, running backs Alvin Kamara, and Mark Ingram oh yeah that Drew Brees guy is pretty good too. It will be a fun time for New Orleans Saints fans once the playoffs come.

The New Orleans Saints are the hottest team in the NFL right now, and not one team seems to be able to shut down that offense with is ranked fourth in the NFL. New Orleans matched all over Philadelphia only allowing the Eagles to score just one touchdown.

Saints have won eight games in a row after starting the season 0-1. The Falcons, Panthers, and Buccaneers all lost today furthering the Saints sole possession in first place at 9-1. It does not appear that they will have competition concerning the NFC South.

Drew Brees is played at a high level again, throwing for 363 yards through the air and completing 22 of his 30 attempts while adding four touchdowns. Even at 39 years old Brees is playing like an MVP. Speaking of MVP Brees is currently in the running for that as well.

New Orleans will no doubt be in the playoffs and as it looks now in a class of their own in the NFC, getting to the Superbowl is the goal and it appears that they may just achieve that goal this year.
