Reversed call gives Saints crucial two points


 

The Saints’ challenge of a two-point conversion play in the fourth quarter of Super Bowl XLIV was rewarded after officials reversed their earlier call that Lance Moore didn’t cleanly catch Drew Brees‘ pass.

After another look, referee Scott Green determined that Moore did indeed have possession and crossed the goal line, giving the Saints two points and a 24-17 lead over the Colts in Miami Gardens, Fla.

Brees threw a 2-yard touchdown pass to TE Jeremy Shockey with 5:46 remaining in the fourth quarter, and the Saints decided to go for two points. Brees tossed a pass to Moore in the front right corner of the end zone, and as he fell, he extended the ball over the goal line before a Colts defensive back knocked it loose.
