SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Former Judge Memorial High School star and current Saints linebacker Kaden Elliss recovered a fumble during New Orleans’ win over the Green Bay Packers.

The Saints hosted the Packers at TIAA Bank Field, the home of the Jacksonville Jaguars, on Sunday, September 12. New Orleans is currently displaced due to the impact of Hurricane Ida in Louisiana.

With 1:1o left in the game, Packers quarterback Jordan Love fumbled the football on the New Orleans five-yard line after being pressured by the Saints defense.

Elliss recovered the football and regained possession for the Saints.

New Orleans knelt the ball and ran the clock out for a 38-3 blowout victory over Green Bay.

With the win, the Saints moved to a 1-0 record to start the season.

New Orleans’ next game is against the Carolina Panthers on Sunday, September 19 at 11 a.m. (MDT). The game will broadcast on FOX.
