To say that Monday night’s game between the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints was a bit on the sloppy side would be an understatement.

In a game that the Panthers need in order to remain in the NFC Playoff race, a whole bunch of crazy went down.

Following a Carolina fumble deep inside the Saints’ territory, Drew Brees methodically drove his team down field for what seemed to be a game-clinching touchdown. The drive culminated in a 16-yard score from running back Alvin Kamara to give New Orleans a 12-7 advantage

Looking at the score and the situation, the Saints decided to go for two. That’s when everything went¬†haywire for New Orleans. This brutal pass attempt from Brees to Michael Thomas was intercepted by rookie¬†Donte Jackson, who returned it the distance of the field for two points.

Yeah, we don’t see this all too often around the NFL world.

It was also a pretty dramatic shift in the landscape of the game. If the Saints had converted on the two-point try, they would’ve been up a full touchdown. Instead, this turned into a mere field goal game.
