NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - Saints fans might have to get over any expectation associated with home field advantage after three straight losses in the Mercedes Benz Superdome.
The Saints' loss to the Ravens began with such promise in its opening minutes.
"Joe Morgan getting the opportunity to run up the near sideline and he's still running - In the 30, 20,15,10 - and dragged down from behind," recapped Jim Henderson.
They were so close and still failed to put points on the board.
In the 34-27 loss, the Saints came up short and turned over a costly interception.
"I was looking this morning," explained Henderson. "Only Blake Bortles of the Jaguars, Jay Cutler of the Bears and Eli Manning have thrown more interceptions than Drew Brees. And last night's was really an inopportune one returned for a touchdown by Will Hill. It means so much to produce a defensive touchdown. Since 2010, the Ravens are 8-0 when they produce a defensive touchdown and Saints had a chance for one of their own back in the first quarter when David Hawthorne, the linebacker, dropped an easy interception that would have been a pick-six. For the Saints, that was a big part of the game. [It was] hard to overcome. Without a doubt, the better team won last night. The offensive and defensive lines of the Ravens were clearly superior to the Saints."
