Saints 26 Eagles 24 _lowres

Advocate staff photo by MATTHEW HINTON-- New Orleans Saints wide receiver Kenny Stills (84) signals touchdown for New Orleans Saints wide receiver Lance Moore (16) in a NFL football game between the New Orleans Saints and the Philadelphia Eagles at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, Penn. Saturday, Jan. 4, 2014.

Not long after Saints receiver Kenny Stills caught 61 passes for 786 yards and five touchdowns during his freshman year in college to help Oklahoma win the Fiesta Bowl at the end of the 2010 season, he was arrested on suspicion of underage drinking and driving.

Stills recalls many predicted he’d experience the dreaded second-year doldrums, and the fact that he was suspended for one game and missed another with a head injury to start 2011 didn’t ameliorate that perception.

But a slump never came.
