Drew Brees, Michael Thomas and Alvin Kamara were razor sharp in one possession of work, and the New Orleans Saints beat the New York Jets 28-13 on Saturday night in preseason action at East Rutherford, N.J.
Brees marched the Saints 72 yards in eight plays, capping it with a 19-yard touchdown to Thomas. Thomas (two grabs, 39 yards) and Kamara (four touches, 33 yards) accounted for all of the yardage, while Brees finished 4 of 6 for 68 yards. That proved to be the trio’s only action this preseason.
Teddy Bridgewater entered as the stars took a seat, finishing 15 of 26 for 143 yards. Taysom Hill was third in at quarterback for the Saints, going 8 of 13 for 127 yards.
Sam Darnold and the Jets’ starters played five series, capping the fifth with a 2-yard TD pass to Ty Montgomery. Montgomery had lost a fumble on the first possession, and New York punted on its next three drives. Darnold finished 8 of 13 for 97 yards and the score.
