Michael Thomas Made Statement In Performance Against Bucs

Even without Drew Brees, Thomas is an elite receiver

Heading into Week 5, it was clear that Michael Thomas was still adjusting to Teddy Bridgewater under center. While he still put up solid numbers with Bridgewater throwing him the ball, he didn't have the eye-popping performances that he consistently produced with Drew Brees at the helm.

But that changed against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday, as Thomas hauled in 11 passes for 182 yards and two touchdowns en route to a 31-24 New Orleans Saints victory.

The 4-1 Saints travel to face the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6 and Thomas will look to carry the momentum into that contest.
