Who dat?

NO SaintsThe saints were off to a very slow start on today’s game against the Miami Dolphins. The Dolphins came out striking first with a Ricky Williams 4 yard touchdown run.  The PAT kick by Dan Carpenter put Miami up 7-0. The saints were able to retaliate and John Carney kicked a 46 yard field goal to bring the score to 7-3. Ricky Williams wasted no time bursting out for a 68 yard touchdown run on Miamis first play. The first quarter came to the end with the Dolphins pretty much dominating the Saints, 14-3.

Most of the second quarter was controlled by the Dolphins, much like the first. Miami kicked a 32 yard field goal. After a quick unsuccessful Saints possession, Ronnie Brown had an 8 yard touchdown run bringing the score to 24-3. With under a minute left in the first half, the saints put together an impressive drive which Brees completed a pass to Colston. After initially being called a touchdown, the play was reviewed and overturned. It was placed on the one yard line. During the review, Drew Brees convinced Saints head coach Sean Peyton to go for the touchdown instead of taking the almost guaranteed field goal. The gamble paid off as Brees successfully leaped over the goal line for the touchdown.  The John Carney extra point brought it to a two possession game with the score 24-10 still in favor of Miami but gave the Saints the momentum going into the second half.

The saints began the second half strong with a Darren Sharper, 42 yard Interception return for a touchdown bringing the score within 7. After holding the Dolphins to a field goal on the next drive, the saints put together another impressive drive ending with a 10 yard Brees-Colston connection for a touchdown bringing the score to 27-24. The Dolphins, Ricky Williams slowed the Saints momentum ending the third quarter by scoring a 4 yard touchdown run. This touchdown was Williams’s third touchdown run on the day and extended Miami’s lead back to 34-24.

The fourth quarter began with the saints striking within the first two minutes. Reggie Bush ran for a 10 yard leaping touchdown bringing the score back with three, 34-31. After a quick three and out for the Dolphins, the saints put together another impressive drive ending with a Drew Brees 2 yard quarterback sneak for a touchdown giving the Saints their first lead of the game. The extra point kicked was missed giving the saints only a 3 point lead, making it possible for Miami to tie the game with a field goal. From this point forward, the Saints never looked back. John Carney hit a 20 yard field goal followed by an interception returned for a touchdown by Tracey Poter on Miami’s next possession was icing on the cake. The final score ended with a victory for the New Orleans Saints, 46-34.  This victory keeps New Orleans undefeated with a record of 6-0!  Who dat? Who dat? Who dat say they gonna beat dem saints?
