Saints take the lead with long touchdown drive

AP

The Saints and Eagles can both strike quickly.

But the Saints took the lead in this one methodically, which hasn’t always been their style.

They might have gotten to the end zone for a 17-14 lead more quickly if not for penalties on left guard Andrus Peat (along with a phantom call on Max Unger), but the end result was similar to so many Saints drives.

Quarterback Drew Brees looked for Michael Thomas in the end zone, and his all-Pro wideout boxed out the defender and made an impressive grab.

That capped an 18-play, 92-yard drive, which had to gain 112 yards to overcome the penalties. It also chewed an amazing 11:29 off the clock, as the Eagles three-and-out to start the second half seems like an hour ago.

Thomas has 10 catches for 140 yards and the score, and the Saints appear to have found the rhythm that eluded them early in the game.

  1. The Visor Wearing Clown of the Philthy team is simply being outmatched in this game. If “The Visor” can play “too cute by half” his team does well. However, when playing against a real team, he is having problems … again. Mediocre game plan. Underwhelming defensive effort.

    Oh wait…I get it. Your screen name gives it away: you’re a front running Cowboys fan.

  4. realtrenches been a Cowboy since childhood. Cute though callin Cowboy fans bandwagoners while also bein one quick to point out Dallas ain’t had a bandwagon to jump on in 23 years

    Carol ain’t nothin but a troll goin from article to article to share their 2 cents though their opinion ain’t even worth that much

  6. Now an OPI despite the pass being thrown behind Ertz. If anything holding Ertz up put him in a better spot to catch it. Philly gotta count on refs to avoid this all out beat down

  7. ESPN is reporting that the Philthydelphia head coach considers “half time adjustments” as putting on a fresh visor.

  8. Look on the brightside, Philthy fans. You won one Snoopy Bowl like other not so famous teams have done. Keep telling yourself that winning one makes you important. Clowns!

  9. Let’s see Dallas has won the division 2 of Daks 3 years compared to Philly winning 1 of Wentz 3 and got better after he got hurt. And beat Philly 4 of 6 games since Dak (though Dallas rested starters in ’16 and Philly rested srarters in ’17) yea I’m likin it so far

  10. Here we go. Lutz just missed a clinching FG. Big shocker. 2:53 to go. Eagles 1 and 10 at own 42. They havw not scored since quarter 1 but they will cap a long drive off here with a TD on 4th down.

  11. Fly, Eagles ,Fly

    On the road to victory

    Fight, Fight, Fight

    Fight, Eagles, Fight

    Score a touchdown, 123

    123

    Hit ’em low

    Hit ’em high

    And watch our Eagles fight

    Fly, Eagles, Fly

    On the road to victory

    E-A-G-L-E-S!

    Eagles!

  12. Dakota – barely wins 1 playoff game and phones it in on two losses. He’s a very unremarkable QB considering he’s been in the league 3 years. I guess if you want to have superficial wins so you can crow, then Dakota is the ideal QB. He won’t win a Snoopy Bowl.

  13. Philthy has some difficult choices to make – without a Snoopy Bowl victory to crow about, they have to face they have a mediocre defense and parts of an offense that can’t get out of its own way. And the Bearded Jason Peters will no longer be effective.

    Party on, Philthy fans. At least you have your visors to twirl this offseason.

  14. Oh, no! Philthy didn’t win the game after winning the first quarter. Three quarters later they scored ZILCH. Party on, fools.

  15. But I thought Philly was a dynasty in the making? I mean their fans said they were the best franchise in the history of all sports period. Don’t tell me they were wrong

  16. Hahaha that is perfect after Alshon’s trash talking in Chicago… karma and good riddance to the Eagles/most annoying fans in football (besides the Packers)…

  17. And now Eagles fans learn what is usually the reality the season after a Super Bowl win. The whole Super Bowl win thing is new to them so they can be forgiven for running their mouths for the last year.

  18. “Dakota – barely wins 1 playoff game and phones it in on two losses.”

    Phones it in on 2 losses? Coming back from 21-3 down against the Packers and almost coming back last night is phoning it in? Like I said your 2 cents ain’t even worth that much
