Saints vs. Patriots Recap: Links, Tweets, & Video From 30-27 Loss to the Patriots

Rob Carr

Yeah, the loss sucks and the officiating was highly questionable, but we're 5-1 and the Saints are still a damn good team with great potential. It could be worse. If not for the Bengals, Tom Brady would have tied Drew Brees' 54 consecutive games with a TD record on that final game-winning pass. You know, the TD pass where an obvious hold on Junior Galette wasn't flagged? This loss hurts, but it would hurt even worse if Brady had tied Brees' record. Our Saints will emerge from their bye week as an even better team and will be amped up for a deep run into the playoffs.
