    Saints Use Big Plays To Dismantle Falcons
    Atlanta, GA - Savage Mason Reporting

    NO would come into this week 14 match-up with the Falcons, with the NFCS lead and looking to put the Falcons out of their misery. Falcons handled up on the Saints early in the season and now had them at home, they were hurting but needed the win. Let's take a look at the pre-game match-up.

    Falcons would get the ball and begin a nice drive looking to score early. Saints D would stop them and hold them to a long 42 yard fg, which Bryant would make. 3-0 Falcons.

    Saints would come right back and score on a 80 yard td throw to Henderson, which took a whole 15 seconds to run off the clock. 7-3 Saints. It would be a day for big play after big play for the Saints.

    Falcons would drive using both Norwood and Big Man Turner to get down close, but Saints would come up with a sack and force a Bryant 22 yard fg to make it 7-6 Saints. End of 1.

    2nd quarter would be all saints and would basically put the game away. Saints would start their scoring off with 6 mins to go in the quarter on a 66 yard td run from bush. 14-6 Saints.

    After a Falcons punt the Saints would begin another great drive, this time Bush would be tired and Brown would have a 70 yard scamper for the td. 21-6 Saints.

    Brees would get the ball back with time expiring in the quarter and hit TE Harbor for the 14 yard td pass. 28-6 Saints.

    Falcons would go all pass heavy and try to get on the board but FS Hatchie would pick it off and return it 82 yard for the pick 6. 35-6 Saints after 1 half.

    The Saints starters would stay in the game for the first drive of the 2nd half, and Bush would take it in from 16 yards out to put the game out of reach, 42-6 Saints. Then in came all back ups and all positions.

    Talbert, who was trying to get involved all day, but had the Legend killer Porter on him, finally started to break loose with back ups in. Talbert would get on the board with a 3 yard pass from Ryan to make it 13-42 Saints.

    Falcons would tack on a 30 yard Bryant FG to wrap up the scoring in the 4th quarter at 42-16 Saints.

    Scoring Summary:
    Player & Team Stats on the game:
    Great game @Obisan - the big play killed you, but its payback for the beating I took at home. LOL, GL rest of the way.

    Player of the game:
    RB Reggie Bush​
    12 Carries for 115 yards and 2 tds, in basically a 1/2 and a little more of play. Bush had a monster day and if he weren't tired for the Brown run, he would have had a bigger day. Saints need Bush to keep staying healthy for them to continue their run at the NFCS.​
