Mike Smith's Call Backfires As New Orleans Saints Nipped Atlanta Falcons In Overtime
Written by

falcons_logoHe could have been a hero.  Could have been called a gutsy genius,.  if the high-risk play had worked and if the Atlanta Falcons would have later gobbled a significant amount of real estate to go on to score.
