- SAINTS TE JIMMY GRAHAM: The Saints’ best offensive weapon had touchdown receptions of 51 and 10 yards in the first half. It was good to see Graham back in early-season form. He is one of the 10 best players in the NFL.
- SAINTS WR ROBERT MEACHEM: Meachem was the Saints’ most effective receiver Sunday, pulling in four catches for 93 yards. Meachem got open deep and caught balls short. It seemed like old times with his play. The Saints have to continue feeding him more balls in the future. His experience and speed could be invaluable during the stretch run.
- SAINTS MENTAL TOUGHNESS: Games like this are why Saints fans should feel good about the team's chances in January. The team didn't bring it's "A" game, it was windy and cold and the fans and everything else were against them, but they kept on fighting.
- SAINTS WR NICK TOON: It doesn't take X-ray vision to see that Toon was trying to hard to do well in his first game in his dad's old stadium, still.... When Toon dropped a pass on a big play and batted a ball up in the air that led to an interception, he became the charter member of "The Saints Career In Jeopardy Club." He might not want to look into long-term housing in the New Orleans area next week.
- SAINTS PK GARRETT HARTLEY: Hartley is the most inconsistent placekicker in the NFL. His career seemed in jeopardy after he missed a 43-yard shot in the first quarter, but he made a 55-yard kick in the third quarter and a 43-yard field goal with 3:06 left. It's hard to get a read on him.
- SAINTS RUN DEFENSE: The only chance of the Jets winning the game rested on their ability to run the ball, which is what the Saints let them do. Don't look now, but the Saints’ hit-or-miss run defense could be an issue later this season.
