Despite going down 16-0 for most of the game, the Saints decided they wanted to make this NFC Divisional Round matchup with the Seattle Seahawks a ball game. Early in the fourth quarter, after a non-fumble call kept their drive alive, the Saints marched down the field and scored their first points of the game.

The touchdown was followed by a successful two-point conversation that narrowed that Seahawks lead to just a single score at 16-8. The drive helped put a spark int he Saints but it highlights a missed field goal earlier in the game that would have made the score at least 16-10 or even 16-11 if the two-point conversion had still been attempted.
