Kenny Vaccaro/Roman Harper Seal the Deal

Way back when, the Saints opened the season against those pesky Atlanta Falcons. The energy and emotions ran at an all-time high, as it marked the return of Coach Sean Payton, and the beginning of the Rob Ryan era on defense. The Saints would be up 23-17 in the fourth quarter with only 3:12 remaining in the game. The Falcons were driving, courtesy of Matt Ryan to Harry Douglas on several occasions. The game would be decided on a fourth down tipped pass by Kenny Vaccaro, and would wind up in the hands of Roman Harper. The win would catapult the Saints in a positive direction.
