Saints 23, Falcons 17
Saints Goal Line Defense Comes Through, AGAIN!
The tone was set from the very beginning. Steve Gleason & Sean Payton lead the ‘WHO DAT’ chant. This was going to be another high octane, prime time matchup.
I love to match up my Keys to the Game against the actual results, and gotta say (aside from the score), it was pretty spot on.
WOW! What a game! You can’t say you couldn’t see this coming down to the last drive. The oxygen masks were in full effect for sure. I didn’t expect a low scoring affair from these two, but there’s several moments in this game that proved to be difference makers.
