With 2:11 remaining in the third quarter, Sanders caught a nine-yard pass from Drew Brees to convert a first down. He flipped the ball to the turf, threw his hands up over his head and was joined in celebration by fellow Saints receiver Marquez Callaway.
So why the big deal? It was a relatively meaningless play in a game the Saints led 26-7.
Big payday for Saints WR
It turns out it meant a lot to Sanders.
