NOTES:

MARCUS SMITH ALERT! The 2014 first round pick played 22 snaps, which is the same amount as Vinny Curry. He was the team's third outside linebacker behind Connor Barwin and Brandon Graham. Smith actually registered his first career defensive tackle on Sunday. He also recorded TWO quarterback hits, according to Pro Football Focus. One of those pressures forced Brees into throwing a bad pass that was picked off by Walter Thurmond. Marcus Smith: playmaker.

Chris Maragos returned to the field this week after sitting out last week's game with an injury. He resumed his role as the team's nickel safety, with Malcolm Jenkins shifting down to play as the cornerback in the slot.

Cedric Thornton and Taylor Hart returned to action this week.

Najee Goode got a decent amount of snaps rotating in at inside linebacker.

Eric Rowe got some limited playing time.

Bryan Braman came in during garbage time and recorded his first career full sack.
