The New Orleans Saints regained a measure of momentum over the Seattle Seahawks at the end of the first half, driving 77 yards in just over a minute to put three points on the board as time expired. When we’re talking about Drew Brees and Sean Payton, momentum isn’t quite as big a deal as it seems, but all right.

The Seahawks are in better position than anybody could’ve expected, and they do get the ball to begin the second half, but it’s still too early for Falcons fans to start getting their hopes up at the thought of a divisional-round bye.
