Saints Morstead "Loves" Nick Folk

New Orleans, La. -

The Saints division rival, the Atlanta Falcons, floundered on Monday Night Football falling in the final seconds to the New York Jets, despite scoring a go-ahead touchdown with less than two minutes remaining.

After the Falcons score, Jets rookie quarterback Geno Smith smoothly executed a series passes to guide his team back down the field as time ticked away, getting close enough to the end zone to set up a potentially game winning field goal with just seconds left on the clock.

Enter kicker Nick Folk, who nailed a 43-yard field goal on the final play, giving the Jets a 30-28 victory.

Saints punter Thomas Morstead tweeted this out after the game:

"I love Nick Folk" #WhoDat

The Saints are sitting pretty in the NFC South. After Week 5:

New Orleans 5----0

Carolina 1----3

Atlanta 1----4

Tampa Bay 0----4
