Terrance Copper is making a habit out of finding the end zone.

The third-year receiver for the New Orleans Saints has scored three touchdowns in his last three games. Copper’s most recent score, coming in a 31-13 win over the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday, came on a Hail Mary to end the first half. The score gave the Saints a 21-6 lead.

“It was the last play of the half and coach (Sean Payton) called the Hail Mary,” said Copper, a former standout at Washington High School and East Carolina University. “We practiced that play on Friday and the crazy thing was, we didn’t even throw the ball. We just ran to certain spots on the field. When (quarterback Drew Brees) threw it, it didn’t seem like anybody else jumped. The ball just landed in my arms.

“I just thought, ‘touchdown.’ I was excited. In the huddle before the play, I told Reggie Bush that if (Brees) threw it up there, I was going to catch it.”
