Saints - A Face & Voice In That Number

Yes, I am very hoarse today and proud of it!

"The Superdome crowd gave the Saints a game-clinching assist with just less than two minutes remaining in their 27-24 divisional playoff victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

On fourth-and-15, with the Eagles needing a first down from their 44-yard line to stay alive, the noise level suddenly cracked a threshold that hadn't been reached.

The disruption helped force Philadelphia lineman Scott Young into a false-start penalty, nullifying a completed first-down pass. The Eagles then decided to punt on fourth-and-14, but they never got the ball back.

"They're the 12th man. You get a crowd loud like that, they had a young guard in there, and he just started moving," defensive tackle Hollis Thomas said.

Up until that point, which arrived just after the two-minute warning, the crowd had been loud. But a certain level of nervous energy kept the crowd just a notch below ear-shattering.

But the 70,001 fans in attendance knew the magnitude of that moment, and the Superdome became deafening."
