New Orleans Saints beat Tampa Bay 35-28 in Brees vs. Josh Freeman shootout
Written by 

brees-packThe New Orleans Saints nipped the Tampa Bay Buccaneers 35-28 in a last-second out-of-bounds touchdown from Josh Freeman to Mike Freeman nullifed by Freeman's coming back onto the field after stepping out of the end zone, victory.

The Saints victory gave them their second win in a row despite four losses. The Bucs dropped to 2-4 after the offensive shootout. 


 QB Drew Brees threw for 377 yards and four touchdowns in an NFC South victory in Tampa Bay. 

Brees extended his NFL record for consecutive games with at least one TD pass to 49. Josh Freeman threw for 420 yards and three touchdowns for Tampa Bay.  The Brees-Bucs shootout ended with three straight incompletions from inside the Saints' 10. 

Here's the way the last few minutes were described by the real-time Bleacherreport feed.

(more to come)

4:24 PM ET

Whoa. Mike Williams was out of bounds and came back in. Illegal touching is the call and the Saints win! Who Dat! Great game by Josh Freeman. Impressed by the entire Buccaneer team. Good win for New Orleans. 

4:20 PM ET

Vincent Jackson is just out. It comes down to one play. Wow, what a game. 

4:19 PM ET

The Buccaneers converted a 4th-and-2 and are now knocking on the door. 

4:17 PM ET

The Saints never make any game easy. 

4:16 PM ET

Saints leave guys wide open for two big plays by Freeman. Doesn't look good.

4:15 PM ET

Saints try to draw the Buccaneers offsides. Good coverage on the Morstead punt.  

4:12 PM ET

This game isn't done yet, Who Dat Nation. Two minutes left, and Josh Freeman will be getting the ball after this upcoming punt on 4th-and-2. Saints defense has played well, so far, but this is where have to show up the most. Let's see what this unit is made off.

4:06 PM ET

Let's see if the Saints can run the four minute offense... Sean Payton perfected the seven minute offense. 

4:05 PM ET

The Bucs cut the lead to 35-28 on a Dallas Clark touchdown reception. That is three touchdowns for Freeman and a 127.1 QB rating. Time for Brees to close Tampa out. 

4:01 PM ET

Akiem Hicks is down now. I guess Sedrick Ellis is back in. Time for a Doug Martin touchdown run right here... It's going to happen with him in.

3:59 PM ET

If there isn't a flag on a play in this game, then I'll be concerned.

catRarely, have I seen few issues that have generated as much raw heat, tension, and passion than the confederate monuments controversy. 

Just as existed during the real civil war, where brothers battled brothers, social media is the battleground, particularly Facebook, pitting friend against friend.

On one side of the tense divide, there are those who are protecting the New Orleans civil war era monuments.  Burnt in effigy, forever, is the symbol of Mayor Mitch Landrieu for up-ending what the monument protectors consider to be the loving civil society of New Orleans.

Lately, events have turned somewhat militaristic.

Some protectors of the confederate monuments have been staying vigilant, in person and online, even surveilling during the wee hours of the morning, waiting for the next Mayor Landrieu attack. On Sunday morning, with protections of snipers, masked workers and a dumbstruck audience, the worst of all of the monuments was cut and carried., the Liberty Monument.
