Saints quarterback Drew Brees was prepared to drive the team for a game-winning field goal attempt if the Atlanta Falcons had scored in the final minute to take the lead against New Orleans on Sunday. Fortunately for Brees, the Saints defense stopped the Falcons on a fourth-and-goal play to preserve a 23-17 win in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
