Saints 23, 49ers 20

Hartley’s Last Second Field Goal Lifts the Saints to 8-2

I hope everyone has invested in an oxygen tank, WOW! That game was intense! The Saints managed to overcome a good bit of things on the day, and beat those pesky 49ers.

We’d like to personally wish our best thoughts & prayers for Jabari Greer. That injury looked seven shades of gruesome, and we likely won’t see Greer back for the rest of the season. Greer has played an integral part with the Saints ever since he came over from Buffalo in 2008.

As for the game, it started similar to last season, as the teams traded drives, with the 49ers going 3 and out to open the game, and then the Saints being stopped on their first drive after getting one first down. Josh Hill opened up the scoring, and then Anquan Boldin would answer to tie the game. After a 49ers field goal, Jed Collins got a rushing touchdown, and the Saints were up 14-10 at the half. Vernon Davis would get the lone score of the 3rd quarter, and after an early 4th quarter field goal, the 49ers were up 20-14. Garrett Hartley would go perfect on his field goal tries, and kick 3 (21, 42, 31) in the last 8 minutes of the game, including the winner as time expired to give the Saints a 23-20 win. 

Hartley, you’re in our good graces until your next miss.
