It’s Official, The New Orleans Saints are #1

Many people picked the Indianapolis Colts to blow out the Saints due to the Saints struggles at the end of the season. Peyton Manning has been to the Super Bowl before so he should have the edge to take his team to victory. If you watched the game, it looked as if the Colts had the Saints where they wanted them, by taking an early 10-0 lead at the end of the 1st quarter. Even when the Saints was at the Colts goal line, they opt not to go for a field goal and went for it on 4th down. Many would say that Sean Payton’s play calling was idiotic, but this is the championship game, he is playing to win because there is no next game if they lose so he is using every single trick up his sleeves to win.

Even after half time, the Colts should receive the ball but a surprising onside kick was recovered by the Saints and from there they went on to rally the Colts and become champions. This is possibly the greatest game I have ever seen and can’t wait til next season. I’m curious if anyone felt the same way and if not, which game did you enjoy the most. Oh, and Lance Moore’s catch for the 2pt conversion was probably the best play of the game in my opinion.
