This was hardly the expected script.
The New Orleans Saints staged a remarkable second-half rally in an effort to remain among the NFL's unbeatens…then lost it all on another Tom Brady-led comeback.
Brady's 17-yard touchdown pass to rookie Kenbrell Thompkins with 5 seconds left in regulation pushed the Patriots to a 30-27 victory that capped a furious 70-yard 68-second drive that was executed with no timeouts -- and with half the crowd at Gillette Stadium already departed.

The New Orleans Saints lost a 30-27 heartbreaker to the New England Patriots on Sunday after allowing Tom Brady to throw the game-winning touchdown with 5 seconds left. Naturally, Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan was disgusted.

According to Mike Triplett of ESPN.com, Saints tight end Jimmy Graham suffered a lower leg injury during Sunday’s loss to the Patriots.
Graham briefly returned to the field after having his lower left leg taped up, but then he limped off with trainers before the game ended. The Saints didn’t offer any injury updates after the game, and Graham was not present in the locker room...
According to Mike Florio of Profootballtalk.com, New Orleans TE Jimmy Graham will undergo an MRI on Monday for a foot injury. Graham injured his foot in the 2nd half of the 30-27 loss to the New England Patriots and couldn't finish the game.
Sunday afternoon, Tom Brady and the Patriots pulled off a 30-27 comeback victory over the New Orleans Saints with a perfect drive in the lst minute of the game that included this TD pass to rookie Kenbrell Thompkins:
Clutch. The loss was the Saints first of the season, dropping them to 5-1. New Orleans linebacker Jonathan Vilma...
Saints running back Mark Ingram will miss another game Sunday versus the Patriots.Fantasy Spin:He's been struggling with a toe injury for most of the season. If you haven't already, we'd recommend dropping Ingram as soon as possible. Even when healthy, he isn't much of a fantasy asset.
In an incredibly scary moment, New England wideout Danny Amendola had to be helped off the field after a massive helmet-to-helmet hit from Rafael Bush.
This was by far the Saints' best offensive performance from an offensive line and running game standpoint. It's odd that it happens to coincide with such a bad game from Brees and Graham. Graham was by design, but Brees was just way off. It's just too bad because this offense needed just one first down to kill this game on the final two drives and couldn't make it...
With just minutes to go, the Patriots decided it was their time to take their last shot against the New Orleans Saints on fourth down deep in their own territory. The Saints’ defense held firm, and that should have been the end of the Patriots.
Then something funny happened. The Saints went conservative, settling for a field goal that put them ahead of the Patriots by a score...

How can the Patriots turn it around and hand the Saints their first loss of the year?

New England’s offense may be getting the bulk of the credit for the Patriots’ win over the Saints on Sunday afternoon, but it was their defense who put them in that position to pull off the dramatic victory.
The Pats’ defense shut down Drew Brees and Co., and most impressively they didn’t allow Jimmy Graham to haul in a single catch in the game. For the first time in 46...
Well Saints fans, it was bound to happen. No matter how good an NFL team is, that team is bound to lose at some point in its season. It’s been that way for more than 40 years. And in the same way that there are character building wins, there can be character building losses. The last thing you want is for that character building first loss to come in a Super Bowl as it did...
Chandler Jones has been having quite the season. After sacking Saints QB Drew Brees, he broke out the Pee Wee Herman Dance. If this isn’t his go to dance, it should be.
FOXBORO, Mass. – Jimmy Graham who?
If Patriots fans have been living in a bubble since their team last played the Saints, that may be what New Englanders are asking themselves right now. The big tight end was the storyline of the week. And now that the week is over, Graham was held catchless.
Aqib Talib played a huge role in stopping Graham, until both players got hurt, that...
