Thoughts: Amazing that Darren Sproles had such a huge impact on only 31 snaps (seven catches for 114 yards, four runs for 28 yards, and two touchdowns). But it's obviously smart to keep him fresh, especially when the game got out of hand late. Sproles also had three punt returns for 44 yards. ... Kind of surprising to see running backs Pierre Thomas and Khiry Robinson share the load so evenly, but that's mostly because Robinson was running out the clock late in the game. If the Saints ever figure out how to get their run game going, I'd expect Thomas to play more of a leading role (at least while Mark Ingram is still banged up). ... Good to see guard Jahri Evans in on every snap. He wasn't perfect, but it's a good sign that they trusted his hamstring to hold up even when he wasn't needed late in the game.
Thoughts: Nobody played every snap on defense, and some guys had a downright light workload. That's a nice way to kick off a short week. Heading into Monday's game, three Saints had played every snap on defense this year (Vaccaro, Malcolm Jenkins and Lofton). Now, nobody has. ... The Saints were especially able to keep their big men on the defensive line fresh (a good rotation among Hicks, John Jenkins, Walker and Foster). They've been getting healthier at that position each week). ... Wilson was hoping to play a bigger role this year, which has led to a little frustration on his part. But for the second week in a row, he was able to make the most of his snaps with a big play. He had his first sack of the season in the second half.
