#20 Carolina at Arizona

#19 Green Bay at Kansas City

#18 NY Giants at San Francisco

#17 Saints at Panthers - Week 4

quote:

Controversial Call: Tight end Jimmy Graham just barely missed a touchdown late in the third when he couldn’t get one of his feet down, or at least the way the official saw it. Needing a touchdown in a 6-3 game, Saints head coach Sean Payton challenged the call. He lost. Upon seeing the replay, it turns out Graham got all but one spike down. One. Spike. Unreal.


#16 Chargers at Chiefs - Week 8

#15 Texans at Bengals - Week 14

#14 Bears at Broncos - Week 14

#13 Saints at Falcons - Week 10
quote:

(Boneheaded) Play of the game: Mike Smith’s fourth-down call would have never occurred if Saints safety Roman Harper didn’t drop a sure interception late.
Trailing 23-20 late in the fourth quarter, Matt Ryan led the Falcons into field goal range, connecting three times with Harry Douglas for 63 yards. But before kicking the game-tying field goal, the Falcons tried to get the go-ahead touchdown on second down. Attempting to hit Tony Gonzalez down the seam, the ball sailed on Ryan ... right into Harper’s hands. That would’ve been ballgame, had Harper hung on.


#12 Patriots at Giants Superbowl

#11 Ravens at Steelers - Week 9

#10 Packers at Giants - Week 13

#9 Cowboys at 49ers - Week 2

#8 Raiders at Texans - Week 5

#7 Patriots at Bills - Week 3

#6 Steelers at Broncos - Wild Card

#5 Saints at Packers - Week 1

quote:

Aaron Rodgers and Drew Brees absolutely tore it up on this night, a night filled with constant scoring and long, inspired marches right down the field. The Packers and Saints combined for 11 drives of 40-plus yards, with eight -- EIGHT! -- travelling at least 70. What makes the last number even more impressive is that doesn’t even include each team’s return touchdown. Thank you, Darren Sproles and Randall Cobb


#4 Ravens at Patriots - Divisional Game

#3 Giants at 49ers - NFC Championship

#2 Giants at Cowboys - Week 14

#1 Saints at 49ers - Divisional Playoff

quote:

Why this game is No. 1: This was the game everyone remembers most. Of the 50 or so people I talked to about games from last season, this was the contest that always came up. Much like our No. 1 game of 2010, this one was easily discernible from the rest.

Saints-Niners pitted the league’s most effective offense against its most disruptive defense. While one of Bountygate’s main storylines has become New Orleans’ defensive preparation for San Francisco’s offense, there were no ill effects to be found during the flow of the game.

Smith played the game of his life, while Brees showed why he is a first-ballot Hall of Famer.

Throw in the last couple minutes, complete with three spectacular touchdowns and a crowd going certifiably nutso, and it’s impossible to not rank this No. 1.

How is NO-GB or NO-SF not on that list? I thought those were much more exciting than the titans game.

I'd imagine the Green Bay game will make the top 10. If this includes playoffs, San Fran should be #1.

Tracy Porter breaking up the pass at the 7 second mark of the game was money. Literally won the game.

that was the game when Colston began his late season surge. in the last six games, including the two playoff games, he had 45 rec. 678 yards and 6 TD's.

Colston was due and I was glad he picked up steam here. What a beast.

one of the better season openers in a while, here's hoping back to blowouts with NYG over the girls.

not surprised. Damn good game, we just came up short. It would have been nice to beat those assholes when it really counted for once though

sure we had a nice regular season streak going against the 49ers but I wanted to see us end their season for once hats off to their defense though, they were a tough defense to run the ball against and forced a lot of turnovers. They fell short of the ultimate prize just like we did. I thought that would do something for me but it didn't. So much has happened since that time so I find myself not caring about that game as much now.
