The Saints have received 5 straight video games with out their future Corridor of Fame quarterback, and seem to have had little bother doing it, too. New Orleans knocked off the Seattle Seahawks and handed the Dallas Cowboys their first lack of the season, after which grabbed wins towards Tampa Bay and Jacksonville earlier than Sunday’s dominant 36-25 victory towards the Chicago Bears — which they did with out operating again Alvin Kamara.
Teddy Bridgewater has appeared strong in Brees’ absence, too, compiling almost 1,100 yards with seven touchdowns whereas finishing almost 70 % of his passes. He went 23 of 38 for 281 yards and had two touchdowns on Sunday, too. Most significantly, although, Bridgewater has stored the Saints profitable.
So, following the win at Soldier Discipline on Sunday, the Saints determined to troll Smith on Twitter in maybe the easiest way potential: sith Michael Scott.
Higher luck subsequent time, Stephen A.
