Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints decided to test the Philadelphia Eagles’ secondary in the early moments of Sunday’s game. Cornerback Cre’Von LeBlanc passed the test.
Brees went deep on the first play from scrimmage, looking for speedster Ted Ginn Jr. But his pass was slightly under thrown and LeBlanc came away with an interception.

Ginn actually appeared to have a step on LeBlanc. But Brees just didn’t get enough on his throw and LeBlanc made him pay.
The play ended up being huge for Philadelphia. Upon taking possession, the Eagles went on a seven-play, 76-yard scoring drive that ended with a touchdown.
