(11:17) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide left. Motions across the formation, sets up tight to the right side of the line. Blocks a CB. (Run play)

(9:53) 3rd & 7: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a go route. Freeman is flushed out the pocket under pressure. Penalty flags. Personal foul. Horsecollar by the New Orleans defense on Freeman. Automatic first down. Interestingly enough, Brian Billick, commentating on the game, says that Saints fans will not be happy with that, as Freeman was heading out of bounds behind the LOS, and there was nothing to be gained by the horsecollar. In light of everything we know now, maybe there was something to be gained by the horsecollar - in the form of a bounty? Just speculating. The defender in question was Alex Brown. Brown doesn't play anymore, but would be interesting to know if he's on the list of players who get suspended over the bounty program? I don't think he's officially retired yet, just a free agent no-one signed last season, in which case he would still be punished. Hmm. Anyway, back to the game.

(9:26) 1st & 10: Williams lines up wide right. Runs a go route. Freeman shovel passes the ball to Blount. Blount catches it but the ball pops out when he goes down. Saints recover. (Cannot tell if Williams was open or covered)
