The New Orleans Saints were one of the best teams in the National Football League in 2017, and were one botched tackle away from going to the NFC Championship game. The Browns pressured Brees (three sacks, four quarterback hits), were determined to minimize the Saints' big plays and were fortuitous. Williams returned the pick 22 yards with 4:57 left.

A two-point conversion run from Alvin Kamara gave the Saints an 18-12 lead over the Browns with just over two minutes remaining in overtime. The Saints were able to come back and take a 18-12 lead after a costly interception by Browns quarterback Tyrod Taylor set them up with great field position to take the lead. Kicker Zane Gonzalez shanked his third straight kick, and second PAT, wide left.

Drew Brees marched the Saints down the field for a 44-yard field goal to give New Orleans a 21-18 lead. His final two misses of the game were on the go-ahead extra-point attempt and the game-tying field goal attempt. With the opportunities given by the defense, the Browns only got three points from the two first half turnovers. The Saints had a few drives that were starting to roll, but the Browns defense forced two turnovers and a missed field goal in the half.

Here's a look at the top plays that kept the Browns winless streak alive, now at 19 straight games and counting.

New Orleans rallied to go ahead 18-12, but Taylor tied the game on his dramatic fourth-down touchdown, only to see the missed extra point follow.


The Browns lost to the Saints on Sunday in a way that seemingly only the Browns can manage.

After taking possession of the ball in Saints territory, the Browns utilized the running game to move the ball down the field, as wide receiver Antonio Callaway scampered down the field for a gain of 15 yards that took the offense from the New Orleans 39-yard line down to the 24.

Like most Browns fans, McCollum continues to get excited about close games, despite knowing that pain is right around the horizon waiting for the ideal moment to strike. The Bucs, who beat the Saints in the opener last week, came into the dome 41 years ago at 0-12 on the season after an 0-14 inaugural season in 1976. Cornerback Terrance Mitchell caused the fumble and recovered it.
