With the Saints keeping their first-team defenders in for most of the game, rookie quarterback Kyle Allen performed with poise and precision despite the gravity of the moment. His first start saw the precocious passer get into a rhythm early, with bootleg passes off play action frequently used to present clearer throwing lanes. Allen felt pressure at times but dealt with it well apart from a couple of dropbacks that saw unblocked defenders come at him. One of those plays resulted in a fumble, only for it to be overturned after review. Allen played with confidence, giving his receivers opportunities to make plays downfield, particularly on his second touchdown pass. The play saw Allen load up and fire a beautiful deep ball to Curtis Samuel on a deep post route. The ball could not have been handed to Samuel any better than it was, such was the accuracy of the throw. His first trip to the end zone came on a one-yard quarterback sneak, finishing a drive after it appeared D.J. Moore had gotten in the end zone. His first touchdown pass showed veteran nous as he fired a pass to the back line of the end zone to Ian Thomas, ensuring the pass was located on Thomas' back shoulder to avoid the defender in coverage. Allen left the game in the second half due to a shoulder injury, sustained after a crushing hit.
