Sproles didn't have to break many tackles as his blocking was phenomenal, as was the case on many Reggie Bush returns the past few years that he didn't take to the house, but the last 40 yards of the return were all speed.
With one man to beat, the punter, Tim Masthay, in perfect position to angle Sproles to the sideline, the Kansas State product simply ran right past him. Masthay might as well have been standing still the way Sproles blew by him.
Now, the Saints are down just four points, making this game not only competitive, but also anyone's to win. With the way these offenses, and now special teams, are performing, it seems like no one will be assured of victory until they breach 50 points or so.
