There can’t be many 50-yard touchdown passes on the Saints’ record books from this decade that don’t include Drew Brees. That changed on Sunday thanks to second-year wide receiver Willie Snead.
The wide out threw a 50-yard touchdown pass to Tim Hightower to drop the hammer on the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday. Brees threw a backwards pass to Snead, who squared up and saw Hightower all alone on the far side of the field. Hightower made a Ram miss in the open field to cruise in for a score.
Snead was pumped up after the score. This makes sense, because he threw a dart to Hightower and picked up his first career passing touchdown.
Total aside, we need more quarterbacks with that kind of hair flow. Look at those locks. My word.
The Saints ended up beating Los Angeles, 49-21. Snead had more passing yards than he did receiving – he caught five balls for 38 yards on the day. Still, a touchdown is a touchdown, whether you are on the giving or receiving end of a bomb down the sideline.
