New Orleans Saints, rookie QB Ian Book fall flat with 20 players sidelined by COVID-19

NEW ORLEANS -- The New Orleans Saints looked every bit like a team down to its fourth quarterback and missing a total of 20 eligible players because of COVID-19 in Monday night’s 20-3 loss to the Miami Dolphins.

Rookie quarterback Ian Book’s pick-six on his third NFL play was the biggest dagger. But he wasn’t alone, as the depleted offense fell flat all night long, finishing with 164 total yards. The Saints went 0 for 12 on third downs, and Book was sacked a staggering eight times.
