Saints Receiver Brandin Cooks Keeps Loss in Perspective After Epic Performance

On one single play, New Orleans wideout Brandin Cooks & Drew Brees broke two long-standing records, one of which has been around since the Saints very first year. Brees threw a dart to the streaking Cooks, resulting in a beautiful 98-yard touchdown catch & run down the sideline. It was the longest play in Saints history, breaking Billy Kilmer's 96-yard pass in 1967, as well as longest TD pass, eclipsing a 90-yard Billy Joe Hobert toss. Although the Saints lost, Cooks keeps game in perspective.
