The New Orleans Saints were pushed to the limit in Sunday’s divisional round game against the Philadelphia Eagles. But a late interception from Marshon Lattimore put the pesky defending champs away.
Trailing by only six, the Eagles were in position to score and take the lead with a late touchdown. Nick Foles had Alshon Jeffery wide open. But Jeffery mishandled the ball and it bounced away — right into Lattimore’s arms.

What a turnaround. Had Jeffery held on to the ball, Philadelphia would have been set up just outside of the 20, if not inside of it.
This interception, coupled with a first down run from Alvin Kamara on the ensuing possession, put the game away. The Saints are now set to host the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday in the NFC Championship Game.
