Seattle Seahawks Knock Off New Orleans Saints Champion Crown In Wildcard
Written by 

New Orleans Saints will not be the Super Bowl champs for 2010 as the Matt Hasselback shreded its defense as the  Saints lost to the Seattle Seahawks in the first wildcard game of the season in the NFC playoffs.  
Drew Brees passed for 404 yards and two touchdowns but the defense gave up four touchdowns to the Seahawks.
Here are post-game notes from NewOrleansSaints.com .   

QB Drew Brees  completed 39 of 60 passes for 404 yards, two touchdowns and a 95.4 passer rating. His completions were an NFL postseason single-game record and it was the 15th postseason 400-yard passing game in postseason record books.
•    The Saints rolled up a total of 474 yards, a club playoff record. Their 32 first downs, 22, passing, were also club postseason records
•    The Saints drove 52 yards in eight plays for a touchdown on their first offensive possession. It is the tenth time overall this season the Saints have scored on their first drive (seven TD, three FG).
•    Going back to the start of the 2009 season, the Saints have scored on their first offensive possession 20 times (14 TD, six FG) in 36 games (including playoffs).
•    Facing his former team, RB Julius Jones  carried 15 times for 59 yards with two touchdowns and had six receptions for 61 yards, giving him a club-best 120 yards from scrimmage. His five-yard touchdown run was the first touchdown by an NFL player against a team that had cut him in the same season. He added a four-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter and his 33-yard screen pass reception helped move the Saints deep into Seahawks territory, helping set up a field goal.
•    WR Devery Henderson  led the Saints in receiving with seven receptions for 71 yards, including a fourth quarter touchdown grab. He also had a club-long 40-yard reception.
•    WR Marques Colston  had four receptions for 66 yards. A first half, 30-yard grab was a postseason career-best.
•    LBs Jonathan Vilma  and Jo-Lonn Dunbar  tied for the team lead with seven tackles apiece.
•    LB Scott Shanle  added a fourth quarter sack to go with six tackles (three solo).
•    CB Jabari Greer  had a first quarter ten-yard interception return, the first of his career in postseason, to go with three solo tackles.
