I noticed in the Saints first drive, at the beginning of the game, everything went wrong after Colston dropped a pass, but at the end of the second quarter when someone caused a Miami fumble that was recovered by Shanle, things got better for the Saints.

There was something off the first few drives... I thought Payton was calling the wrong plays for what the Dolphins were showing.

It was the TD at the end of the half. Going into the lockers with that score probably kept the game in reach mentally for the team.

I think Hardgroves first sack when he first took the field for Ellis changed the tone of play for the DL for the rest of the game. The guy was a beast

I was yelling for running plays.

Re: If there was one play that changed the game...

Agree, Cruise, Sharper, but it was really stripping the ball that resulted in change of momentum at the end of the half. Fins still had game in control, with the ball and marching. We'd not stopped them much in the 1st half and the D was getting abused at that point. Either they were going to get a FG to extend to 27-3 or they were going to run out the clock. The offense got a last chance to gain rhythm and confidence going into the 2nd half regardless of what kind of score (fg or td).

I really felt that the Brees over-the-top TD was the turning point.

I thought we were going to see the momentum swing well before that, but the replay machine was broken on that first challenge.

Re: If there was one play that changed the game...

I don't think it was any one play but if I had to put my money on one I would say the INT (pick 6 mind you) late in the 4th when we were down by 3

Tracy Porter intercepted Henne and ran it back 54 yards for a TD and 46-34 lead.
that was the nail in the coffin
