Jameis Winston, in his first start at quarterback since the 2019 season, threw five touchdown passes in the monstrous win for the Saints. Winston was 14-for-20 with 148 yards and five touchdown passes. According to the FOX broadcast, Winston had the fewest yards thrown for any quarterback with five or more touchdown passes since 1948. He did that all in a huge victory to start the 2021 season.

Rodgers didn’t look like himself. He was 15-for-28 with 133 passing yards. He didn’t throw any touchdown passes and had two interceptions. It was the first time he was held without a touchdown pass in a regular-season game since Week 5 of the 2020 season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
