New Orleans Saints defensive end Marcus Davenport (92) takes the ball out of the hand of Washington Redskins quarterback Alex Smith (11), causing a fumble that was recovered by New Orleans Saints linebacker A.J. Klein (53) during the second half Monday, Oct. 8, 2018, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. The Saints won 43-19.

The Saints are going to be a team that rotates players on defense.

After five weeks, it appears clear the team is comfortable using a rotation of players at linebacker and at safety. That could change, but it appears more likely it will continue on at this point.

Safety Vonn Bell ended up claiming a larger role against Washington after cornerback Marshon Lattimore suffered a concussion, but he would have outpaced Kurt Coleman either way. Bell has settled in as the team's nickel safety, while Coleman serves in base packages.

Defensive end Marcus Davenport also played the most snaps (35) he's played in any game this season. And the rookie earned it. He stood out from start to finish and made several impactful plays on the NFL's biggest stage.
