With the clock running out quickly and a 7-point deficit in his face, New Orleans Saints quarterback Jameis Winston had to make a play on third down. And that’s exactly what he did — Winston went to tight end Juwan Johnson for a crucial touchdown connection, tying the score with the New York Giants before halftime.
It was a great throw, placed between two Giants defenders where only Johnson could reach it. And Johnson got there with an impressive route, breaking off the stem at just the right moment to squeeze into the throwing lane. And just like that the Saints got on the board.
Johnson’s third touchdown catch of the year leads the team, while it was Winston’s eighth scoring throw. The big wide receiver-convert has become one of Winston’s favorite targets early this season.
