Saints- Falcons: Reggie Bush Produces in Win | NFL Fantasy Football Rankings
In another close game, the Saints almost lost their first game of the season, but it was not to be. In the end, the Saints won by a field goal for the second week in a row as they beat the Falcons in Atlanta.
Reggie Bush Scores Twice
While Reggie Bush has had his problems in the running game and health issues, but today he had a good numbers in the passing game. Not only did Bush have six receptions for 46 yards, but he had two touchdown catches as well.
There are rumors that the Saints may cut ties with Bush after this season (money), but he is still helping this team. Look for Bush to continue to be a force in the receiving game as he is one of the best receiving runners in football.
Falcons Hang Tough
From the stat line in this game, you can say that Chris Redman and Michael Jenkins had solid days but that’s about it. The real news of this game was that the Falcons were able to hang with the Saints all game without Matt Ryan and Michael Turner.
It is this hard effort that the Falcons put up every week that makes me believe this franchise is truly over the hump. It’s easy to play hard when your team is doing well but when you are out of the playoffs hunt and you star players are out, you can easily give up.
Expect the Falcons to fight hard the rest of the season.
