Michael Thomas caught a late 72-yard touchdown reception Antworten

and then celebrated with a cellphone in a throwback to another famous New Orleans play Limited Rick Leonard Jersey , and the streaking Saints handed the Los Angeles Rams their first loss of the season with a 45-35 win on Sunday.Drew Brees passed for 346 yards and four touchdowns in New Orleans’ seventh straight win, and Thomas finished with a club-record 211 yards receiving. But what happened after their last connection of the day really stole the show in a wild shootout between two of the NFL’s best offenses.Thomas’ long TD came on a pivotal third-down play with about four minutes to go, when the Rams seemed to expect the Saints to run a play closer to the first-down marker. Thomas ran free behind Marcus Peters, caught Brees’ long throw virtually in stride and ran straight to the goal post, where he got out an old-school flip phone 鈥?reminiscent of Joe Horn’s Sunday night TD celebration in 2003.Like Horn, Thomas was penalized, but the Rams never threatened after that.P.J. Williams, credited with causing two turnovers in New Orleans’ previous victory at Minnesota, broke up a fourth-down pass intended for Brandin Cooks, virtually sealing the result. The former Saints receiver, who caught six passes for 114 yards and a TD Josh Hill Jersey , fell to his knees in frustration.Thomas, who caught 12 passes, eclipsed Wes Chandler’s club record of 205 yards receiving against Atlanta in 1979.New Orleans running back Alvin Kamara scored three times, twice on runs and once on a 16-yard catch-and-run 鈥?all in the first half.The Rams (8-1) very nearly pulled off an extraordinary comeback in the Superdome, where the crowd was revved up after New Orleans (7-1) raced to a three-touchdown lead late in the first half.Los Angeles rallied to tie the game at 35 with 21 unanswered points in just less than 21 minutes off the clock, starting with Greg Zuerlein‘s 56-yard field goal as time expired in the first half.Receiving the kick to start the third quarter, Los Angeles put together an 11-play touchdown drive capped by Malcolm Brown‘s 18-yard catch and run in which the running back hopped over safety Marcus Williams along the sideline and kept his balance long enough to reach the ball across the goal line.After another field goal cut New Orleans’ lead to 35-27, the Rams forced a second straight punt and tied the game on Cooper Kupp‘s 41-yard catch and run along the left sideline.The Saints regained the lead on Wil Lutz‘s 54-yard field goal, and then forced the Rams’ first punt of the game with about five minutes left.Brees threw three touchdowns passes in the first half, when the Saints scored 35 points.Both teams scored touchdowns on each of their first two possessions, starting with Kamara’s 11-yard run and Todd Gurley‘s 8-yard score.Gurley’s score have him a TD in a club-record 12 straight games P.J. Williams Jersey Salute to Service , passing Hall of Famer Elroy Hirsch.The tenor of the game changed when outside linebacker Samson Ebukam stripped New Orleans running back Mark Ingram and defensive Aaron Donald recovered on the Saints 22. But four plays later, Johnny Hekker was ruled down just short of the first down marker on a fake field goal. The Rams challenged, but the call stood, and the Saints marched back down the field, scoring on Brees’ quick hit over the middle to rookie Tre’Quan Smith from 4 yards out.That was the first of three successive touchdowns for New Orleans.After Zuerlein missed a 51-yard field goal attempt, the Saints scored on Brees’ 13-yard pass to Ben Watson with just more than a minute left in the second quarter. Shortly after, Alex Anzelone’s diving interception of Jared Goff‘s pass over the middle set up Kamara’s short TD run with 26 seconds to go in the half.Goff passed for 391 yards and three TDs.INJURIESRams: Edge pass rusher Matt Longacre was being evaluated for a concussion during the second quarter.Saints: Ingram had his arm looked at after his fumble but returned.UP NEXTRams: Host Seattle on Sunday.Saints: Visit Cincinnati on Sunday. Sean Payton is known for his screen plays and getting the ball in his play-makers’ hands. Over the years we have become used to seeing players like Reggie Bush, Pierre Thomas, and more recently Alvin Kamara gain huge chunks of yards on these screens. But sometimes, the best person to catch a screen is the one that is least expected.Josh Hill has caught 3 screens this year for a total of 43 yards. Screens, inherently have a layer of deception to them Authentic Wil Lutz Jersey , but the Saints add wrinkles that add to this level of deception.Hill’s first reception of the year came week 1 against Tampa Bay. The Saints line up in 12 personnel (one running back, two tight ends), with Mike Gillislee in the backfield and Watson and Hill as the tight ends. On his play, the Saints will use play action to freeze the linebackers. Right Guard Larry Warford (#67) will “pull” as if they are running a power run play. To further sell the play action, Hill will block the defensive end momentarily before releasing into the flat. Max Unger and Ryan Ramzyck will lead block on the screen and Hill is able to break a tackle and pick up 15 yards.Hill’s second screen came in week 2 against the Cleveland Browns. This time, the Saints will roll out their 11 personnel (one running back, one tight end). Much like the previous play, this one will feature play action as well, but this time Ted Ginn will run a jet sweep motion from right to left behind the line of scrimmage. The purpose of this motion is to make the defense flow to the opposite side of where the play will happen. One defender who is in man coverage will follow GInn, but the linebackers and safety for Cleveland do a good job at staying disciplined. The offensive line is the same as above, with Warford pulling and Unger and Ramzyck lead blocking for Hill Limited Teddy Bridgewater Jersey , who is only able to gain 5 yards on this play. The third tight end screen for Hill has the most window dressing and is possibly my favorite play design so far of this season. The Saints have their three most dangerous offensive weapons on the field—Mark Ingram in the backfield, Kamara will lineup as a receiver to the outside of a bunch formation to the right, and Michael Thomas split out to the left. This play is not much different than the one called against Cleveland, but having Kamara run the jet motion rather than Ginn presents an even bigger threat to the defense, so naturally they are more likely to flow in his direction. This flow is only aided by having Ingram in the backfield rather than Gillislee. Another subtle detail is that Thomas is split out wider here than in the previous play. This will stretch the defense further out and take players even further away from the playside. By the time Hill peels off of his block and makes the reception, he has nearly 15 yards of open space and ultimately picks up 23 yards. Another thing to note on this play is the nice block from rookie Tre’Quan Smith on the safety. Smith has been a reliable blocker in the run game so far this year and will only help him to stay on the field.Screens are a good way to make over-aggressive defenses pay for that aggressiveness. They are also a good way at slowing down the pass rush from the opposing defense, and with the Saints facing one of the best defensive line in the NFL this weekend, we may see a few more of these tight end screens dialed up.
