Adrian Peterson: 13 carries for 57 yards. Also has pounded ball to keep Saints D on the field.
Visanthe Shaincoe: 4 catches for for 76 yards and a TD. Shank Special Baby! Shank now has 19 TD catches since 2008, which is among NFL TEs. We need more of this Shank until Sticky Rice is back.
Lito Sheppard: Sheppard was supposed to be a liability in pass coverage. Haven’t seen it yet.
Ryan Longwell: Nice on the Field Goal, but lets hope the missed Extra Point doesn’t haunt us in second half.
Asher Allen: Dropping an easy pick and than taking your helmet off on the field is boneheadish. Don’t do it again.
Sorry for the rushed column. More later. Skol!
