Saints lose at home on Monday night and lose their division lead. Drew Brees has a cold night and the Saints offense continues to get off to a slow start. It just doesn't seem as powerful and explosive as everyone thought it would be so far this season. Mare misses FG attempt.
Wow, this is eerily like the real season.
The Saints dropped their first game at home this season in front of the entire country on Monday night against the Tennessee Titans. This one did not turn out as well as last seasons Monday night home opener against the dirty birds. Yet another close game, but the Saints inability to pull the trigger on offense puts them on the losing end.
Three Drew Brees interceptions negated all offensive production. Deuce had a great game on the ground, running for a total of 123 yards, hauling in another 25 yards. Reggie Bush was the leading receiver on the night with 56 yards on only 2 catches, including a long 44 yarder. The defense continued to pile on the sacks, tallying 4 on the day, one each by Hollis Thomas, Roman Harper, Scott Fujita and Jay Bellamy. Scott Shanle was a monster on the field, leading the team with 10 tackles. Mare, of course, missed a FG attempt. He is as much a disappointment in the virtual world as he is in the real world.
Atlanta, who has Michael Vick playing quarterback, now takes the lead in the NFC South.
