The Saints offensive line might’ve been the most impressive group vs. the Texans as they only allowed one sack and created a running game that averaged 7 yards per carry. The defense had an up-and-down night. New Orleans’ secondary is a work in progress at best and had no answers for DeAndre Hopkins. The linebackers were below average as they got gashed in the run game. The pass rush was great compiling 6 sacks and several other hurries on Deshaun Watson. But again, the defensive line struggled to stop the run against guys like Carlos Hyde and Duke Johnson.
Here’s the full list of grades handed out:
Special Teams: A
Drew Brees: B-
Alvin Kamara & Michael Thomas: A-
Offensive Line: A
