The Saints Come Marching In
New Orleans Saints won Super Bowl XLIV defeating Indianapolis Colts 31-17. Sean Payton gutsy onside kick call to start the second half turned the tide for the Saints. It led to a Drew Brees 16-yard screen pass to Pierre Thomas as the Saints get the lead for the first time of the game. For Brees he put on a deserving MVP performance completing 32 out of 39 passes with two touchdowns. Another player shining through is Tracy Porter who comes up clutch once again picking off Peyton Manning pass and running 74 yards for a touchdown to put the game away. Another shining player is kicker Garrett Hartley providing the needed field goals for the Saints to keep up with the Colts. All three goals were over 40+ yards. Congratulations to New Orleans Saints being Super Bowl champions.
