The New Orleans Saints grabbed victory from the jaws of defeat today, overcoming a 15 point fourth quarter defecit to beat Washington in overtime 34-31.  It was a game that seemed lost for the Saints, as they were getting outplayed through three and a half quarters on both sides of the football.  Yet, on their final two possessions quarterback Drew Brees led his offense on back to back touchdown drives while executing nearly flawlessly.  The defense came up with big stops when it mattered most and the Saints won their eighth straight game to improve to 8-2 on the season.

Former Saints quarterback Bobby Hebert said there was a little something special in the air at the Superdome.

"It turns out to be magic," Hebert said.  "What I mean by that - good omen.  To win a Super Bowl you've got to be great.  You've got to be great but the ball has to bounce your way, or you've got to make plays.  Whether you call it luck, or you make your own luck, you've got to win games."

It was not only a incredible comeback win, it was a much needed victory.  The Saints are trying to keep pace with the Vikings, Rams, and Eagles on top of the NFC.  Hebert said the Saints just need to keep winning.

"You have to keep the momentum," he said.  "If you at the NFC standings, the Vikings won five in a row, the Rams (were) on a five game winning streak.  The Saints needed a seven game winning streak just to stay on top of the NFC South.  It's a heated battle!"
