Brees leads Saints past Seahawks in New Orleans

The New Orleans Saints rallied to defeat the Seattle Seahawks 25-20 Sunday at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. Kicker Wil Litz added his fourth goal of the game, a 41-yarder with 1:57 to play, to provide the final margin. If you are big in the National Football League, you just line up and play - why you got to cut someone on the (expletive) play? "The last drive was a testament to our resilience". "We are going to be able to do it".

"Jimmy's been on a real ascent here for a month or so since he really got his legs back under him and got enough play time that he got through kind of what preseason would have been to him", Seahawks coach Pete Carroll Friday. Second-year player Frank Clark (4.5 sacks) will likely replace him.

Seattle's defense also forced a field goal in the third quarter after the Saints had a first-and-goal on the 1 and thwarted a Saints 2-point conversion attempt after Cooks' TD.

Wide receiver Tanner McElvoy took a lateral pass behind the line of scrimmage from Wilson and then threw across the field to running back C.J. Prosise. That set up Christine Michael's' short TD run, making it 14-3.

BENCHED: Ingram was benched after his fumble on this third carry of the game. "I don't know how he did that that fast, but he did, and he looks like he's ready to compete for it". Over the course of the past four games, Graham has caught 23 passes for 355 yards.

Graham wore ear buds as he departed the locker room and kept his focus straight ahead as waiting media walked with him and attempted to ask questions.
