MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. — There’s a feeling in this press box at Sun Life Stadium that the 51-yard miss by the Colts’ Matt Stover was a win on two fronts for the Saints — not only did they get the ball back in great field position, but the momentum swung back in their favor.
NFL.com analyst Pat Kirwan believes that the teams will not have to score on every possession remaining to win this game. Can’t say I disagree.
Before I could even finish the post, the Saints did just that — they took nine plays to drive the field, and Drew Brees was perfect. In fact, he completed all seven of his attempts on the drive, to seven different receivers. The last went to TE Jeremy Shockey for the 2-yard touchdown.
