The Saints got this one started with a picture perfect drive. A good mix of run/pass plays and they found themselves up quick with a 7-0 lead. The defense would come out and do its job and force a quick 3 and out for the Falcons offense. It looked as though the Saints would be able to pull away early, but on the Falcon punt return man Brandin Cooks muffed the puntil and ATL would recover. That led to an ATL TD and a 7-7 tied game. Atlanta would then clamp down and play a very good ball game. The key play of this game came right before half. Trailing 14-10 with about 20 seconds to go, the Saints got a long 70 yard pass to 2nd year pro Mercel Greenwood which set up a FG as tike ticked off the clock. ATL led at half 14-13. ATL opened the second half with possession and wasted no time. They drive right down the field and put up another TD to extend the lead to 21-13. The Saints, however; were not done. They would get a TD via the feet of QB Adrian Crawford from a couple yard out. Down 21-19, they would try the 2 pt conversion and successfully complete it. The Saints would add a FG in the 4th quarter and buckle down on defense ending the game and securing the 24-21 victory over their NFC South rival. GG Michael Overman . See you in a few weeks.
