Even when the Saints had a 10-point lead in the fourth quarter, something just seemed a bit off. It isn't even that the Saints weren't playing well. They actually were playing really well. But the game just had that feel of a game that would come down to the last snap.
For the Saints to come out on top by a three-point margin in overtime was excruciating for the fan, but exhilarating for the players and coaches.
To come out on top in this game had a lot less to do with the xs and os and much more to do with heart and determination. The Saints have excelled in that regard for the greater part of this year. Sunday heart was exactly the ingredient which the Saints used to win the game.
