At some point -- and amid the flurry of touchdowns and big plays it was difficult to say exactly when – it went from remarkable to ridiculous.

The New York Giants and New Orleans Saints were turning the Superdome on its ear with one of the most prolific displays of offensive football the NFL has ever seen. And no one watching could quite believe what they were witnessing. Even the players themselves were in awe.

"It was like magic," Saints running back C.J. Spiller said.

"It was amazing," wide receiver Brandin Cooks added.

How amazing? The Giants and Saints combined for 101 points, 1,030 yards and an NFL-record 14 touchdowns. And on the final snap of the 141-play pyrotechnic marathon, Kai Forbath's 50-yard goal was the game winner.

Saints 52, Giants 49.

Fittingly, the third highest scoring game in NFL history was decided by the team that had the ball last.

"I've never been a part of something like that," Brees said.

Few have.

The teams' 14 combined touchdowns were the most since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970.

Absolutely an incredible game. Second only to winning the Super Bowl. This win should really help our young players see what it takes to win the NFL and serve us well as the season continues.

I played in games like that and its just insane. Its not like the defenses isn't playing their hearts out, its just two offences clicking and clicking and clicking. This summer my team won a game 69-56 that was just like this.

Re: New Orleans Saints celebrate All Saints Day with win for the ages

I got to see the fourth quarter and you knew whoever had the ball last was probably gonna' win. It was liking watching a Saints game from a few seasons ago, when every time they had the ball they'd make something happen, . Good game, glad they closed it out in regulation ... I was thinking that kicker-thread was gonna' explode if Forbath didn't connect, .

I'm exhausted.

Yeah. I didn't have any beer in the house and had to go to a local pub after the game. It was intense.
