But on a more impressive note, the defense found a way to get their job done. Despite allowing 442 yards of total offense, the Saints Defense held the Colts' offensive scoring machine to a very mild 17 points (10 of those coming in the first quarter). Even more impressive, they made Peyton Manning, one of the most clutch quarterbacks in the game, make a very costly error late in the game resulting in a Saints' defensive score.
Sean Payton put together a gameplan that worked to perfection, and the Colts just couldn't match it on this occasion. With play calling that was both ballsy and brilliant, Payton's plan was well orchestrated on the way to victory.
I was disappointed to see the Colts lose. And i was only 1-4 on my bold predictions (i called the big play coming from a no-name guy, Tracy Porter). But with superbowl now over, I can focus on more important things... like baseball
