Yes. After every touchdown in the 2nd half we went for 2 (and made them, once by pass and the other by running up the middle). The broadcast bunch couldn't figure out why and went back and reviewed Hartley's kick in the 1st half and, after the kick, he grabbed his leg like he hurt something. They showed him on the bench still in pads but never returned to the game.

My gosh, I just hope it's not serious enough for the Saints to have to use a roster spot on a second place kicker... (We can all bet John Carney is aware of this situation... lol)

Payton said just a pull.

So far, most of our injuries have all been nicks and dings, nothing really serious to any of our key starters. Franklin may be the only projected starter that might miss 1 or 2 games, and he's not really a starter.

Hopefully our starting 22 don't play at all next week.

Still,, the guy kicks all day! That's all he does. What did he do differently in a game situation that he pulled a muscle doing it?

Can't tell you. It looked pretty routine to me.

I got a chuckle when they lined-up for 2, I think it was the last time, and when it was mentioned that they were going for 2 again, Al Michaels said, "Well...why not?" Chris Collinsworth follows with, "Or...why?"

You had to be there.
