JACKSONVILLE, Fla. (AP) -- The only thing missing was the band ... and the extra point.The New Orleans Saints scored a 75-yard touchdown on one of the wackiest plays in NFL history Sunday, then -- just as unbelievably -- John Carney missed the PAT with no time left.The result was a 20-19 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars that dropped the Saints out of the playoff race. It will surely go down as one of the most twisted, cruel moments in the 37-year history of the star-struck franchise.
What an unbelievable finish to this game! It always seems to be one thing or another with the Saints. They seem to always be in games and find a way to lose. It'll be very interesting to see how they bounce back from this stunning loss.
Question on the Jaguars: How has Jack Del Rio gotten this team to play so well down the stretch?
Eric Allen played cornerback for 14 NFL seasons with the Eagles, Saints and Raiders.
