Statistical perspective on Bush's big day
By Pat Yasinskas
NEW ORLEANS -- Couple of interesting notes on Reggie Bush from our friends at ESPN Stats & Information.
Bush had a huge impact in the game despite running the ball just five times -- all five rushes resulted in first downs for the Saints. In fact, out of Bush’s nine offensive touches, seven went for first downs.
Also, it's important to note that Bush's 46-yard touchdown run came out of a four-receiver set. Running out of a four-receiver set was rare and not very productive for the Saints during the regular season. They attempted it only five times and produced just 15 yards.
