Mistake Free On the Right Side of the Ball
Drew Brees made zero mistakes in terms of interceptions or poorly thrown balls, ball security was there, and Tim Lelito (who filled in for Jahri Evans) only surrendered one sack.
Hell, I can only dream of games that continue to work this way.
On the other side of the ball, Corey White was victimized early on, as he was beat on several passing plays. However, adjustments were made, and we saw Roderick Sweeting enter the game to play late in the half.
White would recover a fumble forced by Keyunta Dawson, and as Sean Payton saw in his crystal ball, this game would come down to a late turnover.
Speaking of Coach Payton, how about the timeout to ice Matt Bryant? That’s something that rarely happens, but it worked, and that’s all that matters.
