QB Matt Ryan orchestrated the game’s first drive as he led the Falcons 80 yards on seven plays while completing all five of his passes. Bryan completed a play-action pass to T Mike Johnson in the endzone to cap off the drive and K Matt Bryant made the extra point to give Atlanta an early 7-0 lead.

Then, on the Saints first offensive possession, QB Drew Brees was intercepted by CB Asante Samuel. The Saints defense held Atlanta to a three-and-out and Bryan added three points with a 37-yard field goal.

Then, the Saints took to the ground as RB Mark Ingram rushed for 13 yards, RB Pierre Thomas earned a first down, and then RB Chris Ivory broke off a 56-yard touchdown run, the longest rush of his career. K Garrett Hartley made the PAT to close the gap.
