Everyone’s lunch was about to come up, as the Falcons marched 53 yards in 4 plays, after the Saints opted for a Garrett Hartley field goal from the Atlanta 4. The Saints originally were trying to draw the Falcons offsides (because they could have made a first down without scoring a touchdown). Roman Harper (hey, where’s those people that said we should cut him at?) showed up in a big way, after Kenny Vaccaro tipped the final pass as he was tasked to guard against Tony Gonzalez.
