Saints beat Titans 22-17 for 5th straight victory


< Previous Page


Brees appeared to connect with Graham on a 4-yard touchdown at the edge of the end zone, but a replay showed the tip of Graham’s right foot touched out of bounds. New Orleans coach Sean Payton challenged the ruling, which was upheld, and Kasay kicked a 22-yard field goal to make it 9-3 with 3:51 left in the third quarter.

The Saints also missed another scoring opportunity early in the first half. Darren Sproles returned a punt 82 yards to the end zone, but the score was negated on a holding call on Dunbar. The only other time the Saints didn’t score a touchdown in the first half was in their 31-21 loss at St. Louis on Oct. 30.
