Saints vs. Packers: Final Report Card, Grades for New Orleans

Final Score

Saints- 27

Packers- 28

The New Orleans Saints walked into Lambeau Field and had the Packers right where they wanted them. Leading 27-21 with about nine minutes to go, and possessing the football, the Saints only needed to run the football effectively. If they could possess the ball for four minutes and score a touchdown or field goal, they would have left Lambeau with their first win of the year. 

Instead, Pete Carmichael called three straight passing plays. The Saints went three-and-out, the Packers came back and not surprisingly scored easily. 

The rest is history. Garrett Hartley missed a 48-yard field goal, after making a 43-yarder which was nullified by a bad holding call against Dave Thomas. And that was that. Game over, essentially.
