The New Orleans Saints are coming off a convincing win against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 3 of the preseason, and several different players stood out in the win. That said, if the Saints want their success to continue into the regular season, the players who stood out in the preseason will need to continue to impress. Without further ado, here are the five Saints players who stood out in week three of the preseason.

Luke McCown has certainly been impressive this preseason, and in Week 3, he again looked solid, guiding the Saints to a score in his first possession. While he likely won't beat out Ryan Griffin for the Saints' No. 2 quarterback spot, McCown has looked impressive nonetheless.

Kenny Vaccaro is quickly becoming one of the best safeties in the league, and it showed against the Indianapolis Colts. Vaccaro came away with an interception, and he appears to have developed into an even better player than he was in 2013.

Mark Ingram continues to run well in the preseason, leading the Saints in rushing against the Colts. With 5.8 yards per carry in Week 3, Ingram continues to look like a legitimate feature back.

With an impressive preseason debut, Drew Brees showed the Saints that an oblique injury that kept him out the first two weeks of the preseason is no longer a problem. Brees tossed two touchdown passes and looked confident in his 2014 debut.
