Saints shine in Pro Bowl
GLENDALE, AZ - The New Orleans Saints had four players selected for this year's NFL Pro Bowl. Three of them shined in Team Irvin's 32-28 win over Team Carter.
The brightest was Tight End Jimmy Graham. The Black and Gold's leading receiver caught three passes for 30 yards with a pair of touchdowns. He celebrated each score with his signature dunk through the goal posts.
Graham was joined on Team Irvin by Running Back Mark Ingram, who had a great game of his own. He led all runners with 11 carries for 72 yards, while catching both passes thrown his way for another 18 yards. He's the first Saints' back selected to the NFL's all-star game since Deuce McAllister.
Quarterback Drew Brees played well for Team Carter in defeat. He completed 13 of 21 for 163 yards, with two touchdowns and one interception.
LSU product Odell Beckham put the finishing touches on a stellar rookie season, catching five passes for 89 yards.
