Fans voted TE Benjamin Watson as the New Orleans Saints' offensive MVP in the team's win against the Atlanta Falcons in a poll on the team's website this week.
Watson earned 74 percent of the 1,368 votes. Along with Watson, Drew Brees (19%) and Mark Ingram (5%) rounded out the top three in the poll.
Watson posted 10 catches for a career-high 127 yards. It was Watson's third career game of 100 receiving yards or more and first since he posted 10 catches for 100 yards on Dec. 5, 2010 at Miami while a member of the Cleveland Browns.
Watson caught six passes for 72 yards in the first half, both first-half career highs.
Watson became the first Saints tight end with at least 100 yards receiving since Jimmy Graham caught 10 passes for 118 yards on Sept. 14, 2014 at Cleveland.
