Saints are headed to the playoffs


FLETCHER: I’M FLETCHER MACKEL ALONGSIDE SHARIEF ISHAQ IN THE MERCEDES-BENZ SUPERDOME FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE 2013 SEASON, THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS ARE HEADED TO THE PLAYOFFS. THEY PUNCHED THEIR TICKET INTO THE POSTSEASON BY BEATING THE ATLANT FALCONS, SHARIEF: SHARIEF: FINAL SCORE 23-13. A DIFFERENT GAME THAN TWO WEEKS AGO IN ATLANTA, WHEN THEY LOST 20-17. I THINK THEIR BEST GAME OF THE SEASON IN ALL THREE PHASES, OFFENSE, DEFENSE, PICKING UP WHEN NUMBER 11 ON THE SEASON. — WHEN NUMBER 11 ON THE SEASON. THE CROWD WAS VERY ELECTRIC THANKS TO STEVE GLEASON, WHO STARTED THE WHO DAT YEAR DURING THE GAME. LET’S PICK UP IN THE SECOND QUARTER, SAINTS UP SIX-ZERO. MARSHON LATTIMORE ON TOP OF THEM. TURNS AROUND AND IS ABLE TO HOLD ON FOR THE INTERCEPTION. WITH UNDER ONE MINUTE LEFT, THE SAINTS CATCH THAT INTERCEPTION. DREW BREES THROWING IT DEEP. 54 YARD HOOKUP, THE SAINTS HAVE THE 13-0 LEAD AT THE HALF. FLETCHER: IN THE SECOND HALF, THE DEFENSE CONTINUED TO SHINE. THEY FORCED A TURNOVER AND HAD NOT ONE, BUT TWO GOLDLINE STANDS. MARK INGRAM WAS ICING ON THE CAKE. HIS 26 YARD TOUCHDOWN SECURES THE SAINTS VICTORY. THE BLACK AND GOLD ARE 11 AND FOR OVERALL, THEY SECURED THEIR FIRST PLAYOFF BERTH FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2013.>>WE HAVE A LOT OF GOALS. WE WOULD LOVE TO WIN OUR DIVISION, WE HAVE TO GO OUT NEXT WEEKEND AND TAKE THAT. THERE ARE THOSE WHO HAD 15-10 PLUS YEAR CAREERS, THEY DIDN’T MAKE IT TO THE PLAYOFFS. I’M VERY GRATEFUL TO MAKE IT TO THE PLAYOFFS.>>I THINK WE HAVE WON IN A LOT OF DIFFERENT WAYS, WE HAVE OVERCOME A LOT. YOU WERE TELLING US HOW WE FEEL ABOUT A ZERO-TO START. WE STAYED TRUE TO WHAT WE FELT WAS OUR PROCESS AND WINNING FORMULA. WE KNEW OUR TIME WOULD COME. FLETCHER: SINCE IT’S CHRISTMAS EVE, ALVIN KAMARA WORE SPECIAL CHRISTMAS CLEATS. HE KNOWS A FINE FROM THE NFL IS COMING, BUT HE DOESN’T CARE.>>WHATEVER THE FINE IS, I WILL PAY IT AND DONATE THE REST TO CHARITY. SHARIEF: I THINK ALVIN KAMARA WILL BE FIN THOSE ARE PRETTY AMAZING. HE WILL TAKE THEM TO TAMPA BAY NEXT WEEK AS THE SAINTS ARE GOING TO CLINCH THE NFC SOUTH TITLE FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE 2011. ALL THEY NEED TO DO IS BEAT THE BUCCANEERS OR HAVE THE FALCONS TAKE CARE OF THE CAROLINA PANTHERS.
