On Thursday night, Dre Brees won the fourth night on the fourth night of the tenth to the twentieth night, and he defeated Atlanta who eliminated Falcone from NFC South.
Tommilee Levis and Austin Carr caught up with their second carriages for their career, and the original champion Dan Arnold grabbed his first, as was the journalist Keith Kirkvood. All four have entered the NFL as unprocessed free players in the last three years and have combined for zero touchdown this season before Carr caught his first career last week.
"He talks a lot about them, he talks a lot about taking advantage of opportunities and strengthening when he asks for it," Brees said of his latest goals of accurate contact. "It's fun to watch them grow and get confidence. We build chemistry, which usually takes time, is not it?" But they are pushed into this role. "
In the meantime, Falcons (4-7) lost three fumblets inside Saints 20 – something that no team facing New Orleans (10-1) can afford this season.
"The defense today played a huge amount of a real explosive attack," Brees said. "They have four crafts, it's a huge stat in the game."
The Atlantean blemish Matt Rian took away the safety of Marcus Villiams in the third and second place from Saints 3, and Villiams recovered to finish the start in Atlanta. Julio Jones took the lead of Alec Anzalone after catching New Orleans 17, and security Vonn Bell recovered in the last minute of the second quarter to save the lead from 17-3 to halftime.
"Whenever you have a craft when you are in a threat – just do the numbers, do your math," said World Series Coach Sean Paiton.
New Orleans' defense, which had six bags for the season, continued with great performances in the second half. In the third quarter Anzalone interrupted the fourth fall dog and the winner A.J. Klein intercepted the passage that defended Teler Davison in the fourth.
The interception gave Saints the possession on Atlanta 22, setting Kirkwood's diving 4-yard TD catch.
Just for good measure, Marshon Lattimore drove Calvin Ridlei to Saints 1 after completing 29 yards which looked like he would end up with a touchdown with about four minutes to go. Eli's defensive backbone restored him.
"When you have one traffic [in the red zone], it feels like a lot, "said Falcons coach Dan Kuinn." We had three downs and it was a real story about the game. "
Ryan was under pressure all night from the Saints' defense, who was prompted by the return of Mark Davenport's first round of finger injury that had left him three matches. Cameron Jordan had two sacks, while Villiams, P.J. Villiams, Sheldon Rankins and Demario Davis had one.
Ryan finished 35 out of 47 for 377 yards, two points and one interception. But very little has become easy. His first TD GP, Calvin Ridley, entered the quarter and goal 2 at the end of the third quarter.
Atlanta jumped only 26 yards, while New Orleans finished with 150, led by Alvin Kamar 89 and Mark Ingram 52.
Statistically, Brees did not have one of his impressive games, finishing 15 out of 22 passes for 171 yards with his second interception of the season. Damontae Kazee, his NFL chief, won this year.
But Brees's ability to play the power of non-obligatory receivers has enabled the World to invest in a scoring opportunity.
Levis, the third-year-old, was in his first game after spending nine weeks in an injured reserve and did not catch the passage for the whole season before he became open to his two-year grip which made 7-0 in the first game series. Carr is a second-year professional who played in just one game without a catch as a journalist. He was also open after the Falcons defenders placed a fake Ingram service. Kirkwood made his NFL debut before three games when Arnold had his first career in career.
"It's obvious that Drew is someone who is very confident in the preparation, sure about the players around him. There is a lot of things to do," Paiton said. "I'm excited about those guys who have the opportunity."
