When you look at the New Orleans Saints, one word should come to mind: exciting.

The Saints ranked second in the league last year in scoring with 34.2 points per game and led the NFL in passing yards with 334.2 yards per game. This offense can open up the floodgates and score at will. Scoreboard operators have their busiest days when the Saints are in town.

But it isn’t just the Saints' passing attack that leads to New Orleans being so great on offense. Only five teams in the NFL rushed for more yards per game (132.9) last season, and no one moved the chains better than the 26 times per game New Orleans notched first downs.

It’s an awful lot of fun to watch the Saints on game day. Last season, New Orleans scored 30 or more points 10 times, putting up 62 against Indianapolis and 49 against the eventual Super Bowl New York Giants. Their lowest scoring output of the year came in Week 6 in a 26-20 loss to Tampa Bay.

Every time the Saints step onto the field, expect fireworks. But who should you watch, specifically, to get an idea of just how explosive this team is?

Here are the Saints’ five most exciting players.
