On most occasions when games played in the Boston area result in a score of 7-6, people think about a Red Sox win (or loss depending on if you're a glass-half-empty type of person). That wasn't the case Thursday evening.
The local team did win 7-6, but this was no baseball game.
Quarterback Drew Brees played for two series Thursday and went 1-for-4 for four yards. His last pass of the night was his sole completion. Talk about ending on a high note.
The New Orleans offense posted 280 yards of offense in the game and never reached the end zone. The Saints settled for two field goals, a 46-yarder from John Kasay and a 26-yarder from Garrett Hartley.
After that—quite possibly because of that—the game was devoid of offense. It was sad coming from two teams that usually put scoreboards through the ringer.
