The New Orleans Saints were fighting for their lives, but they finally got a big break in their playoff game against the Seattle Seahawks.

In the fourth quarter, with the Saints down 16-8, Drew Brees threw up a deep pass for Robert Meachem that looked like it was going to be intercepted. Instead, the ball was tipped into the air and Meachem was able to snag it for a 52-yard reception.

Here's another view of the play.

Unfortunately, the Saints couldn't capitalize as the drive ended with a missed field goal.
