Deion Jones Makes A Game Saving INT To Defeat The Saints

The New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons faced off against each other on Thursday night. Saints QB Drew Brees drove the team down to their redzone. With 1:30 seconds left in the game Atlanta was only up by three points. The Saints could have scored a touchdown and taking the lead, leaving the Falcons with less than a minute to regain the lead. Or worst case put kick a field goal and tie the game up.

What could possibly go wrong? On 2nd and 10, Brees did not see the Falcons middle linebacker Deion Jones lurking in the middle of the field. Jones dropped back into coverage and made an acrobatic interception to end the game.

“When the tight end looked back, it made me look back, and the ball was right there,” Jones said. “I just wanted to make a play on the ball for my brothers, even if it was just batting it out of his hands. It just ended up being right in my hands.”

He finished with a game-high 13 tackles, including three tackles for loss. He also had two pass deflections. But his biggest play came on the Saints’ final drive.

“I just opened up my eyes, and all of my brothers were standing right there,” Jones said. “Once I realize I had it, I knew it was a long way down (to the ground) because I felt my feet in the air. I just wanted to hold on to the ball. I’m glad I was able to do that for my brothers.”

What a way to end a game.
