Saints News, 11/27/15: Tracy Porter Makes a Key Cameo on Brett Favre Night

New, comments

From ProFootballTalk.com: It was fitting that, on the night the Packers retired the number of quarterback Brett Favre, a player responsible for one of Favre’s most notorious interceptions not only played in the game — but also made an interception of Favre’s successor. “You’re coming in feeling like a homecoming game with them doing the extra things with Brett Favre and whatnot, but our mindset was to come in and win,” Porter said after the game via the Chicago Tribune. “That’s what we did.” That is what they did, raining on the Favre parade the same way the way Porter’s Saints did in 2009, after Favre had driven the Vikings down the field for what at the time seemed to be an inevitable game-winning goal.
