With four receptions in the season opener on Sunday, tight end Benjamin Watson has 499 for his 15-year NFL career. With one grab today against his former team Cleveland (2010-12), Watson would become the 14th tight end in NFL record books with 500 career grabs.
With three touchdown passes in last Sunday’s season opener, quarterback Drew Brees became the NFL’s alltime leader for touchdown passes in season openers with 37, surpassing Peyton Manning (34).
Running back Alvin Kamara scored 20 points in Sunday’s team opener, finishing with three touchdowns and a fourth quarter rushing two-point conversion. The 20 points was the highest total by a Saint in a season opener and the third-highest total all-time in club history. It was also the first time Kamara scored three touchdowns in a contest.
