Saints Tickets – Bengals Bungle

by on December 6, 2010 updated April 19, 2014

The New Orleans Saints are the defending Super Bowl champs. That being said, they are not playing as well as they did last season and have been able to post a five-game winning streak on timely plays and a little bit of smarts. Or some bungles on the part of their opponents.

The razor thin edge of winning and losing in the NFL was brought home to a national audience yesterday and demonstrates the difference between a well coached team and a team that has just lost something. The Cincinnati Bengals were supposed to be a playoff contender in 2010. Instead they are 2-10, mostly because of bungles like the one yesterday. Down by three the Saints line up for a 4th and 2 deep in the Bengals red zone. Everybody in the stadium knows new Orleans isn’t going to snap the ball. Everyone but the Bengals. Drew Brees does some hollering, sends a man in motion, rips off a hard count…..and the Bengals jump offsides.  First down Saints. Touchdown saints on the next play and game over. Another Bengals bungle or a brilliant move by New Orleans? You decide.
