New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw a costly interception against the Detroit Lions, and he took the blame for his team losing.
The New Orleans Saints fell to 2-4 after blowing a 23-10 lead to the Detroit Lions. Lions quarterback Matthew Stafford threw two touchdown passes with under four minutes remaining.
The Lions had taken a 24-23 lead after Saints quarterback Drew Brees threw an interception to give the Lions ideal field position for the winning touchdown.
After this drive, the Saints had an opportunity to redeem themselves with a game-winning scoring drive. However, Brees failed to capitalize on the opportunity, and the Lions subsequently ran out the clock.
Brees accepted the blame for the Saints losing. “The worst feeling in professional sports is when you feel like you let your team down. And that’s the way I feel right now,” the Saints quarterback said to The Times-Picayune.
This loss puts the Saints in even more danger of missing the playoffs, but they are fortunate to be in a weak NFC South that is led by the Carolina Panthers, who fell to 3-3-1.
The Saints will have a big opportunity to get back into the race against the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football.View poll on FanMob
