Deion Jones Makes A Game Saving INT To Defeat The Saints

Published

on

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.

Gronk is back for one last ride with the Patriots. Gronk posted his return to the Patriots on IG.

“I met with coach today and informed him I will be back for the 2018 season with the Pats,” Gronkowski wrote. “I have been working out, staying in shape and feel great. Looking forward to another championship run. #bandsmakeherdance”

The 28-year-old tight end was closed to hang up his cleats after Super Bowl 52.

“I don’t know how you heard that, but I mean, I’m definitely going to look at my future, for sure,” he said. “I’m going to sit down in the next couple of weeks and see where I’m at.” When prodded even further, in terms of what it would take to get him to hang the jersey up for good, he staunchly maintained his position. “I’m not ready for these types of questions right now,” he said. I mean, I’m just going to sit down, reflect on the season, keep talking to my teammates…and just see what happens.”

The Utah Jazz are on the verge of closing out the series against OKC. Just pause and take that all in. No one would have said the Jazz after losing Gordon Hayward in free agency would be up 3-1 against Russell Westbrook and Paul George. But thanks to Donovan Mitchell that is what we have on our hands.

The Jazz won an old-school physical game 4 against Thunder 113-96 on Monday in Vivint Smart Home Arena to take a 3-1 lead.

Donovan Mitchell scored 33 points, with seven rebounds and four assists behind 13-of-28 shooting from the field. The Jazz announced the guard surpassed Karl Malone’s franchise record for the most points in a playoff game, which the Hall of Famer set in 1986 with 31 points.

“We just stayed within ourselves,” Donovan Mitchell said. “We always say the strength of our team is the strength of our team. I said this morning we’re not really worried about one individual comment. I think if we get caught up in that it takes us out of our own game, and our play showed tonight that we really just focused on each other and made the right plays when we needed to.”
