Special To Steelers Gab From Editor Al Sacco

In Week 10 of the 2013 NFL season, the New Orleans Saints beat the San Francisco 49ers 23-20. On the surface, the game’s outcome (which will ultimately have major playoff implications for the NFC) looks like a close battle that came down to the wire between two very good teams. For those who watched the events unfold though, what actually happened will tell a different story.

With 3:12 left in the game, the Saints trailed 20-17 and faced a 3rd down. As Drew Brees dropped back to pass, Ahmad Brooks came closing in.
