    Darren Sproles returned 2 kickoffs and tallied 336 All Purpose Yards

    While Drew Brees continues to struggle with moving the ball, it was Darren Sproles who took the game in his own hands, returning 2 kick returns for scores as The Saints eeked out a victory over Miami 31-24.

    Ryan Tannehill completed 18-28 for 234 yards and 2 touchdowns in win, including a 65 yard touchdown pass to pull Miami within 7 with under 2 minutes remaining, however it was his 3 interceptions inside the 50 that might have cost his team the win.

    Miami got on the scoreboard first with a brandon tate 1 yard touchdown scamper, later the Saints would see Drew Brees hit Colston on a 7 yard slant route to knot the score. After Miami went up by 7, Darren Sproles took his first kickoff 103 yards for the score (later adding a 100 yard return).

    While Brees still struggles he made 2 big play in the passing game, on a 3rd and 5 early in the 4th he found a wide open Jimmy Graham for a 47 yard catch. However it was the play action touchdown to Lance Moore, of a 52 yard variety that put the Saints up by 2 scores with 3 minutes remaining.

    Defense again came through for the Saints, forcing 3 INT and sacking Tannehill 3 times in the win.
