The New Orleans Saints game-ending drive against the Seattle Seahawks didn’t go as planned. There was a play called where wide receiver Marques Colston would throw a lateral 50 yards across the width of the field. Instead of being a lateral, it was more of a forward pass ending the game on a sour note, some saying Colston could’ve stepped out of bounds and given his team another shot at the end zone late in the game.
“It’s a play that we worked on,” Colston told ESPN. “Obviously, it’s not an ideal situation [being behind with time expiring and no timeouts], but the ball came out. And obviously the throw didn’t go the way I would have planned. But, it happens.”
Head coach Sean Payton said it was a play they had worked on.
“Marques has got a pretty good arm,” Payton said. You know, hindsight, [it was] a play where he could have caught it, stepped out and then maybe [we throw] a Hail Mary to the end zone. But it was a play we had put in a week and a half ago, prior to this game, which was a deep throw to Marques and then across the field.”
