How did we win?

this is a discussion within the Saints Community Forum; I couldn't see the game. Can someone tell me how we managed to win? Did it look like the team had any fire or was it just a collapse on the part of KC? How did they only score 20 ...

How did we win?

I couldn't see the game. Can someone tell me how we managed to win? Did it look like the team had any fire or was it just a collapse on the part of KC? How did they only score 20 points despite all those yards? I'd have to guess turnovers were the key. Did we force them or did the Chiefs hand them to us? How did the O-line look? How well did the CB's play? Looked like Brown had a lot of tackles.

I expected a blowout and I still expect to get blown out next week, but if there's reason for hope please let me know. I'd love nothing more than to stagger back onto the bandwagon.

i watched the game..... and i`m still trying to figure it out.... the defense rallied in the final seconds in the redzone after giving up huge hunks of yardage to keep KC from tieing.

How did we win?

Well I will give it a shot

The run D in the second half was pretty good. Good for the Saints anyway. They gave up 100-plus yards in the first half.

The Chiefs shot themselves in the foot over and over with stupid (some questionable) penalties. The Saints had their fair share but not too many. For the Saints anyway.

Mike Mckenzie looked really good I thought. NO blitzes in the second half that I saw. Green had ALL day to find Kennison\'s old butt over and over. NO pass rush until KC\'s final play. BTW that final play had only a three man rush. Go and figure.

Deuce had 69 yds. on 6 carries in the first half so of course they didn\'t give him the ball nearly enough. He may have been a little lame though.

Aaron when he had time hit Joe for huge chunks. He didn\'t have time very often though. The O-Line sucked ass all day. I usually want Aaron to step up in the pocket rather than back-pedalling but there was no pocket.

The wide receiver screen reared it\'s ugly head again of course. Donte\' had 3 catches for 11 yds. That play or any screen pass from our offense still didn\'t work.

The last Chiefs drive they should have scored on but the D got pressure on Green for the first time in the entire second half and he threw too hard and the ball was tipped. Ruff got a gift and picked it to end everyone\'s misery with a minute and a half left.

Special team play was good with the exception of the opening kickoff.

How did they win?
I have no idea.

Another confusing, confounding and even with the win frustrating game from the Saints.

I am now the Anti-Al Davis.
\"Just Lose Baby\" is my mantra.

I'm no one.
Who are you?

And the winner of the most innane comment of the evening in response to a legitimate quesiton is:

We scored more points than they did!

Ok, I just had to get that out of my system; I\'m personally a bit tired of lame responses to good questions, and I thought I\'d point it out here by so doing.

Well I think 4 turnovers can answer your questions of how we won. Penalties had alot to do with it also. I was watching the highlights on primetime last night the cheifs where in the the redzone twice in the closing minutes only to throw an interception and green was striped of the football. Also supposively earlier in the game Blaylock fumbled.

Having already given my props to NO for winning, I will say the Chiefs wanted to lose more than the Saints. It really looked like both teams were trying to shoot themselves in the foot -- KC just had better aim.

Now seriously... despite all those yards, without the Priest, we couldn\'t find the end zone. You lose a significant part of your team when 60 percent of your TDs come from one man and that one man is out of the game.
