Saints Rally Comes Up Short

Statistical Leaders:

Tyrod Taylor: 7/11, 88 yards passing, 1 TD

Zamir White: 15 rushes, 78 yards, 1 TD

Jamison Crowder: 3 receptions, 59 yards, 1 TD

Chase Young: 5 tackles, 4 sacks

Marcus Davenport: 3 tackles, 1 sack

The Jets went up to a 14-0 lead early in the first quarter after a quick touchdown drive led by two great completions from Emory Jones to Jamison Crowder, capped off by a slant for a touchdown to Crowder. On the next possession, the Jets strip sacked New Orleans quarterback Kyle Allen, and they quickly capitalized with a short rushing touchdown by Jones. The Saints were unable to muster much of an offense, but they were able to drive into the redzone on a few occasions, where they scored twice and stonewalled the rest. Emory Jones went down after a cheap shot by Cameron Jordan away from the ball. Is Sean Payton back to his old tricks, putting bounties on players? Despicable.

Quick hits:

Leonard Williams had a night to forget, finishing the game without a single statistic to his name. Does this prove that the Jets made the right move trading him, or was it just an off game?

The Saints have many question marks moving forward, but Kyle Allen sure looks like the quarterback of the future as he takes the reins from Drew Brees.

Emory Jones looked sharp before going down with a minor injury early, going 5/5 for 73 yards and touchdown plus a 2 yard rushing score. He is their guy, but Tyrod Taylor can play when called upon.
