The New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints’ record, 3-7, tells the story: The team is having all sorts of difficulty winning games in 2022. That doesn’t mean that, even in defeat – like Sunday’s 20-10 loss to the Steelers at Acrisure Stadium in Pittsburgh – there aren’t noteworthy performances.
OFFENSE: Without much hoopla, tight end Juwan Johnson has ascended to the top of the list for touchdown receptions this season with four, adding a 15-yard scoring catch Sunday against the Steelers. The three-year veteran has worked his way into becoming a reliable option for the Saints; against Pittsburgh, he led the team in receptions (five), receiving yards (44) and targets (seven). Johnson’s a former wide receiver, so he understands how to get open and he often proves to be a matchup issue for opposing defenses. He already has single-season career highs for receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns.
