On Sunday, Marques Colston caught a slant from Drew Brees at the Dallas 24-yard line when cornerback Morris Claiborne punched it out as Colston tried to secure the ball. The ball rolled 22 yards downfield toward the end zone.
Cowboys coach Jason Garrett disputed Colston’s fumble – believing it was an incompletion instead – that gave the Saints the ball at the Dallas 2-yard line. New Orleans kicked the game-winning field goal on the next play after referee Walt Coleman had confirmed the ruling ont the field.
“The play went against us,” Garrett said. “It was eerily similar to last week and both of them seemed to go against us, and the plays seemed virtually identical. But that’s the way it is. We’ve got to play and coach to the best of our ability and not worry about it.”
