Seahawks Beat Saints 23-15 Thanks In Part To Marques Colston's Stupidity

All Marques Colston needed to do was step out of bounds and give Drew Brees a shot at the end zone and, in turn, his Saints a shot at tying today's game in Seattle. Instead he decided to try his hand at quarterbacking himself—and cost his team that one chance at winning.

The Saints managed to recover the onside kick after a late touchdown that drew them to within eight points, and Brees found Colston along the sideline at the Seahawks' 40 with ten seconds remaining. Colston, apparently thinking time had expired and not knowing the basic rules of football, launched a forward pass across the field that didn't come anywhere near its target. Officials ruled the play dead, and the subsequent ten-second runoff for an offensive in-play penalty left them without any time to throw a hail mary pass. Thanks, Marques! You made our day.
