NEW ORLEANS — Saints cornerback Jabari Greer slightly trailed Atlanta’s Roddy White in the end zone, handing Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan the opening he thought he needed to sink New Orleans’ season.

Instead, Greer dove at the last second, batting away the pass with his left hand and sending the more than 73,000 fans in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome into delirium.

The Saints defeated the Falcons 31-27 on Sunday, knocking Atlanta from its unbeaten perch and handing New Orleans its fourth win in five games.
The defense held Atlanta (8-1) to just 46 yards rushing, but allowed Falcons quarterback Matt Ryan to throw for nearly 399 yards and three touchdowns.

But when New Orleans (4-5) needed the defense the most, it came through.

Up by four with 5:54 to play, New Orleans’ defense allowed the Falcons to drive to the 1-yard line. Three straight plays culminated in Greer’s game-saving play and the kept alive New Orleans’ slimmest of hopes for something to play for as the season moves into its second half.

The Saints were just 4 of 10 on third down but that was masked by the team’s most impressive rushing effort to date. New Orleans gained 149 yards on the ground and 441 total yards.

Re: Saints knock Falcons from unbeaten perch with 31-27 victory

What a great result for the Saints!

Defence played really well today! If we could just find a way for our Defence to slow down the oppositions passing game then that would be the last piece of the puzzle in place!

Also well played Chris Ivory! He should play in every game for the rest of the season IMO!

Yeah! We just ruined the Falcons perfect season! How sweet that feels!!!

GEAUX SAINTS!!!!!!!!!
