Saints Vs. Bears: Devery Henderson Breaks Free For 79-Yard TD

With Marques Colston sidelined with a broken collarbone, a lot of people picked Devery Henderson as a player to watch. Well, a lot of people are right: Drew Brees found Henderson for a 79-yard touchdown. It was his second catch of the day, and he's just nine yard shy of his second consecutive 100-yard game. 

How big was Henderson's play? According to WWL-TV, it was the Saints' biggest play in almost a year: 

Devery Henderson showed his speed is still there. Big play. It's the longest play from scrimmage since 80-yd TD on Sept. 26, 2010.

Keep in mind, it's still early in the second quarter -- Henderson could be due for a very, very big day.
