Devery Henderson showed why the Saints made him a second-round draft pick, beating two defenders to a pass and setting up New Orleans' winning touchdown Friday night.
``We were taking a shot down field. We know Devery can run well, he's a playmaker and I gave him an opportunity,'' third-team quarterback J.T. O'Sullivan said.
``He went up and made a great play on the ball and gave us a chance to win the game.''
The 48-yard O'Sullivan-to-Henderson pass in the fourth quarter set up O'Sullivan's 1-yard run as the Saints beat the Chicago Bears 17-13 in a penalty-filled third preseason game.
The 3 1/2 -hour game featured 30 penalties, including 18 for 136 yards on the Bears and 12 for 82 on New Orleans.
The Saints next game is tomorrow night 9/3 against the Chicago Bears. The last time that the Saints have met with the Bears was August 28, 2003 where the Bears won 24-10. But after last weeks game, our team seems very pumped up and excited about tomorrow's meeting. GO SAINTS!!!!!!!!!!!1
