Jimmy Graham caught eight passes for 72 yards and a touchdown in Monday night's Week 9 victory over the Eagles.
Graham hauled in eight of his team-high 11 targets. No other Saints receiver saw more than four passes from Drew Brees. Graham worked over the Eagles' nonathletic linebackers and back-up free safety David Sims on a consistent basis. His score came from six yards out to put the final nail in Philadelphia's coffin at the end of the third quarter. Graham is on pace to catch 76 passes for 774 yards and 10 touchdowns at the season's midpoint. Keep in mind that he missed one game with an ankle injury, so if Graham can stay healthy for the rest of the way, those yards are sure to rise. New Orleans welcomes Atlanta to town in Week 10. Graham is a top-three tight end the rest of the way.
The injury to Sproles is going to give Graham a ton of targets the rest of the way.
What injury? Dude got up after each catch and flung the ball in anger. He's hungry.
