"Part of the section describing when a player is down:

when a runner declares himself down by:
falling to the ground, or kneeling, and clearly making no immediate effort to advance.

I think that's clear. The Saints receiver was down falling down and not advancing."

So, a player can be declared down by going to the ground, doesn't have to be a kneel or slide, without being touched by a defender. Would the ref had blown the whistle in time? I don't know, but if I had to guess, I'd say probably. All the Saints receivers were in that 10 yard area and 5 of the 6 Texan defenders were there too. Brees threw to the one guy whose defender was about 7 yards more downfield, so it was an easy completion.

  Good point though offensive player can take a knee as well.
