Saints WR’s Share The Wealth
Multiple New Orleans Saints receivers came through with big plays, in the team's 30-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys, on Thanksgiving Day. Mike Triplett, of the Times-Picayune, has the story, below.
New Orleans Saints receiver Robert Meachem wasn't targeted once in the first 57 minutes of the Saints' 30-27 victory over the Dallas Cowboys on Thursday.
But then, with 2:25 remaining, quarterback Drew Brees fired a bullet down the right sideline, over the head of cornerback Terence Newman, and into the waiting arms of Meachem for a 55-yard gain and the biggest offensive play of the day.
On the very next play, Brees hit receiver Lance Moore with a 12-yard touchdown pass that gave the Saints a lead they never surrendered.
