The Last Second Kenbrell Thompkins Touchdown

Without warning, I’ll be sure to open your old wounds and douse them with salt. It looked as though the Saints were in prime position to knock off the New England Patriots in their backyard, thanks to a late score from Kenny Stills, and a good couple of stops from the Saints defense. However, a questionable three and out drive by the Saints would give Tom Brady the ball back with 1:13 left in the game.

Brady would take the Patriots 70 yards, and put the final dagger in the Saints with five seconds left, connecting with wide receiver Kenbrell Thompkins for the game winning score.

Fans remember this most because of the ‘missed’ holding call on Junior Galette. Karma would catch up to the Patriots, however.
