Saints ride Thomas' clutch catches to crucial win vs. Jets

NEW ORLEANS (AP) An official briefly followed Michael Thomas back toward the Saints' huddle, warning the receiver against continuing to toss the ball downfield to no one in particular as a way of celebrating his first-down catches.

The act was getting tiresome for those who had to retrieve the ball because Thomas kept coming through with clutch grabs to ensure New Orleans would keep the New York Jets at bay.

Thomas caught nine passes for 93 yards, including a pivotal 4-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter of the Saints' 31-19 victory over New York on Sunday. In the process, Thomas reached 94 catches this season, making him just the second NFL player - along with the New York Giants' Odell Beckham - to have at least 90 receptions in each of his first two years.
