New Orleans Saints fans stood near their seats cheering, but in disbelief.

After the Houston Texans orchestrated a quick drive to tie the game, Texans kicker Ka'imi Fairbairn missed the extra-point attempt, leaving the score tied.

But Saints rookie C.J. Gardner-Johnson was flagged for roughing the kicker and the Texans got another chance, this time converting the attempt to pull ahead of the Saints by a point with 37 seconds left.



But Saints quarterback Drew Brees quickly drove kicker Wil Lutz to do what he's trained to do. Lutz converted a career-long 58-yard field goal as time expired to give the Saints a 30-28 victory Monday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, their first win in a season opener since 2013.
