METAIRIE, La. -- Brandin Cooks talked this summer about wanting to prove he is more than just a deep threat.

If the New Orleans Saints receiver hadn’t accomplished that already, he did so with three fantastic catches in the second half of Sunday’s 25-23 loss to the Denver Broncos.

Cooks made three tough catches for 37, 29 and 32 yards, absorbing some big hits from the Broncos’ punishing secondary along the way. His 32-yard TD catch (that might have been a game-winner if the Saints had made the extra point) was a thing of beauty.

“I know that’s what I can do,” said the Saints’ third-year pro, who ranks 10th in the NFL with 77.1 receiving yards per game and is on pace for 78 catches, 1,233 yards and 11 touchdowns. “It’s just a matter of having the opportunities to do it, and when they present themselves, taking advantage of it, to be able to put that on film for the coaches.
