THAT is the New Orleans Saints team we were expecting out of the gate.In what was another roller-coaster of a game with plenty of ups and downs along the way http://www.authenticsneworleanssaints.com/cheap-tyeler-davison-jersey , here are a couple that stood out.Robert Deutsch-USA TODAY SportsUp: Alvin KamaraLet’s get this one out of the way.Alvin Kamara was absolutely incredible this game. He finished the afternoon with 181 yards from scrimmage and all three Saints touchdowns. His biggest run came on a 49 touchdown run to ice the game with two minutes left to go in regulation.For as much as the Saints rushing attack has faltered through the season’s first four weeks, Kamara impressed as a runner in Week 4. With Mark Ingram set to return for Monday Night Football next week, the Saints rushing attack should only get better.Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsUp: Saints defenseThe Saints defense took a big step forward in Week 4, sacking Eli Manning multiple times, causing and recovering two fumbles, and holding the Giants to under 20 points.Saquon Barkley was held to under 50 rushing yards, Odell Beckham Jr had only 60 receiving yards, and, outside of Sterling Shepard, the New York Giants largely struggled on offense.PJ Williams, filling in for the injured Patrick Robinson, played well for the Saints, and if New Orleans can expect this level of play out of their defense (I mean, did you see that tackle for a loss by Marcus Davenport?) Color Rush Benjamin Watson Jersey , this Saints team could really end up going on a run.Brad Penner-USA TODAY SportsUp: Taysom HillFor the third week in a row, Taysom Hill made the “Ups” for the Saints, and this time he provided the spark that helped the entire offense get moving. After what appeared to be a second quick, three-and-out series, Taysom Hill connected with Justin Hardee on a fake punt to extend the Saints drive.His second pass attempt of the game was a would-be touchdown that was dropped by Alvin Kamara, Kamara’s only real blemish on the day. In addition to throwing passes, Taysom also caught a pass as a wide receiver, rushed as a halfback, ran the read-option multiple times as a quarterback, and blocked as a tight end. For the world seeing Taysom for the first time, this was as close to a “coming out party” as you can get for the Saints electrifying #7.Photo by Elsa/Getty ImagesDown: Special TeamsThe Saints struggles early in the game in the red zone and on third down almost made the list, but those issues seemed to work themselves out as the game went on. On the other hand, the Saints play on special teams almost appeared to just get worse.The Saints brought back Brandon Tate before Sunday afternoon’s game, and he was back to return a punt for New Orleans early in the game. the punt was a low and short kick that Tate had to run forward to catch - normally http://www.authenticsneworleanssaints.com/cheap-max-unger-jersey , this forward momentum is helpful for a return, but Tate fumbled the ball forward, and only by the grace of the football gods, had the ball take a lucky bounce and end up back in his hands as Tate continued forward.Then on the Giants final kickoff of the game, late in the fourth quarter, with New York down just one possession, Ted Ginn Jr was back to return the kick. The “hands” team was on the field, in anticipation of a possible onside kick, leaving Ginn as the lone Saint deep. The kickoff went Ginn’s way, and Ginn erroneously decided to field the kick at the one instead of letting it roll into the end zone. Ginn had absolutely zero blockers out in front of him, so even if he fielded the kick cleanly, would likely have been dropped well short of the twenty-five yard line. Instead, Ginn botched the catch, stumbled to pick the ball up Color Rush Sheldon Rankins Jersey , and then was dropped inside the five yard line.You could see Sean Payton fuming on the sidelines, so special teams will surely get some attention before Week 5. Alex Smith is not exactly playing like the perfect solution at quarterback for the Washington Redskins. The secondary is a mess. The team hardly seemed ready coming off a bye week and now faces the challenge of a short week.So what if they're leading the NFC East?Things are not looking great for the Redskins (2-2) as they prepare to host Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers (3-1) on Sunday."We have a cloud looming over our head," Washington coach Jay Gruden said, "with a lot of issues we need to clean up. I have faith that this veteran team will clean it up."He decided not to hold a full practice on Wednesday, instead opting to simply put his players through a walkthrough.The Redskins did not return to the area until about 5 a.m. on Tuesday after its 43-19 shellacking against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints on Monday night.The problems that need correcting are everywhere.Smith threw an inexplicable interception on a fourth-and-2 play. Brees picked apart the defense, to the point that Gruden decided to bench cornerback Josh Norman coming out of halftime."As a unit," Norman said Wednesday, "we did not do our best."There were third-down penalties in the early going called against defensive backs Norman, Monte Nicholson and Quinton Dunbar.Asked specifically about his QB, Gruden responded: "A lot of things happened to a lot of people in that game that weren't very good. He's one of them, I was one of them, we all were."Smith acknowledged, "There's a lot that I could do better," but he also said that coming off such a lopsided defeat Youth Mark Ingram II Jersey , it's important not to dismiss it as a one-time deal."You don't want to be naive. You want to be real with yourself," said Smith, whose rating of 92.9 is tied for 19th in the NFL among players who have thrown at least 80 passes this season. "Every guy has to look in the mirror and be real with themselves."If the Redskins are going to get back above .500, by beating an opponent they've lost to five times in a row, they know they'll need to put the poor performance against the Saints behind them.Gruden noted that one thing that contributed to the problems Monday was an inability to move beyond individual mistakes."It's always on to the next play, don't let the last play determine your thoughts or your actions toward the next play," the coach said. "We, actually, probably, wallowed around in our own (mess) for too long ... as a whole group."Notes: Gruden said that WR Jamison Crowder (ankle), WR Paul Richardson (shoulder, knee) and S Troy Apke (hamstring) would not have practiced had the team had a regular session.
