SAINTS 43, FAL­CONS 37 (OT)

Calgary Herald - - SPORTS -

Drew Brees’ one-yard run capped an 80-yard touch­down drive to open over­time. Brees’ score came af­ter his ap­par­ent three-yard TD pass to Alvin Ka­mara was over­turned on video re­view that de­ter­mined Ka­mara’s knee was down be­fore the goal-line. Brees scored on a keeper on the fol­low­ing play, giv­ing the Saints (2-1) the win on the day the 39-year-old quar­ter­back set the NFL record for ca­reer com­ple­tions. Brees passed for 396 yards and three touch­downs and ran for two scores. Ka­mara had 15 catches for 124 yards and ran for 66 yards. At­lanta’s Matt Ryan had his first ca­reer game with five scor­ing passes, in­clud­ing three to rookie Calvin Ri­d­ley.
