PFF Game Recap

Top 5 Grades:

CB Ken Crawley, 85.2 overall grade

WR Michael Thomas, 83.8 overall grade

CB P.J. Williams, 82.0 overall grade

QB Drew Brees, 81.0 overall grade

G Larry Warford 80.8 overall grade
Performances of Note:
QB Drew Brees, 81.0 overall grade

Outside of a dropped interception thrown directly in the arms of Luke Kuechly, Brees played an efficient game, finding his main target Michael Thomas in the short and intermediate passing game often. Brees benefited from solid offensive line play, as he was under duress on just 4 of his 29 attempts. His work against the blitz was impressive as usual, finishing 9-10 for 117 yards 1 TD and a 148.8 passer rating
WR Michael Thomas, 83.8 overall grade

Seeing mostly zone coverage, Thomas caught passes on 5 different defenders on his 7 receptions. He finished the day with 32 of his 87 yards coming after the catch, working mostly in the underneath areas of the field and on dig routes in the middle of the field. Drew Brees finished with a 151.6 passer rating when targeting Thomas on the day.
CB Ken Crawley, 85.2 overall grade, CB P.J. Williams, 82.0 overall grade

Cornerbacks Ken Crawley and P.J. Williams were outstanding in the Saints secondary, posting coverage grades of 84.7 and 82.2. They were targeted a combined 13 times and surrendered only 7 receptions for 59 yards. They limited opponents yards after the catch, only allowing a combined 22 yards after the catch on the day. P.J. Williams also came up big, jumping a slant route intended for Devin Funchess and intercepting Cam Newton.
4 EDGE Cameron Jordran, 76.8 overall grade

Jordan wasnít as dominating against Carolina as he had been the previous two weeks, he finished with a game grade of 76.8, but he did play stout in run defense, recording an 83.3 grade in that department. Jordanís three quarterback hurries led the team, giving him six total on the year.

CB Ken Crawley, 85.2 overall grade ... well done KC.

All he needed was an opportunity to redeem himself.

Side note -

Is it just me or is PJ Williams a thumper? He isn't afraid to throw that forearm out and light you up. I've seen a couple of guys fall sideways after he tackles them. It was nice to see him get an INT as well.

C'mon Lattimore, you have work to do .

Re: PFF Game Recap

Crawley's never played nickel has he? Williams and Lattimore are entrenched on the outside when both healthy but Crawley needs to be on the field more.

I think you are correct. All I've ever known KC to play is RCB.

Re: PFF Game Recap

G Larry Warford 80.8 overall grade

Beating the Panthers defense starts up front and yet no write up for OG lol no respect. He neutralized Starr all game and held his own when he faced Short. The OL looked better passing off assignments as need to pick up blitzs and stunts. Still look like a bunch of white boys out there dancing but at least they have found the rhythm

CB P.J. Williams, 82.0 overall grade

I was starting to think he might be gun shy after all the injuries. I guess he answered that question. He looked like the player I thought we drafted. A solid cover and run support CB.

CB Ken Crawley, 85.2 overall grade

I ate my crow last year on this kid. a small UDFA crow is easy to handle.
