Saints say last play vs. Seahawks was part of plan

Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports
The New Orleans Saints season came to an end last saturday on an ill-fated forward pass by Marques Colston, but according to this ESPN Article, that was the play they wanted, just not the outcome.

METAIRIE, La. -- New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton and wide receiver Marques Colston both clarified Monday that the ill-fated forward pass that ended Saturday's 23-15 loss to the Seattle Seahawks was, in fact, a designed play that went awry.

It was supposed to be a lateral across the field to running back Travaris Cadet -- a play the Saints had added to their playbook a week earlier. But Colston admittedly struggled with the execution by throwing the ball forward.

"Obviously the throw didn't go the way I would have planned. But, it happens," Saints receiver Marques Colston said of the team's failed final play.
And Payton admitted that the Saints probably called the play earlier than needed, with 11 seconds remaining and New Orleans on its own 49-yard line. But he said with no timeouts left, the Saints went with it.
Here is a GIF of the last play:



Colston finished the game with 11 receptions for 144 yards and 1 TD.
