Saints onside kick to start second half (New Orleans Saints vs. Indianapolis Colts, Super Bowl XLIV)
The Saints' Sean Payton has never been viewed as a conventional NFL head coach, so it shouldn’t have come as much of a surprise when he attempted the ballsiest of plays to start the second half of Super Bowl XLIV. With the Saints down 10-6, and kicking off to a very dangerous, Peyton Manning-led Colts offense, Payton called a surprising (to everybody) onside kick, marking the first time in Super Bowl history that a team opted for the play to start the second half. After the ball cleared the required 15 yards, and proceeded to bounce off Hank Baskett’s (your girlfriend knows him) facemask, a pile-on ensued that took referees over a minute to sort out. In the end, Saints linebacker Jonathan Casillas came up with the pill and the Saints turned the recovery into a touchdown and an eventual 31-17 victory.
