Playoff Flashback, Jan. 24, 2010: NFC championship game, Saints 31, Vikings 28

Posted Jan 6, 2014

Garrett Hartley's kick sent Saints to their first Super Bowl

K Garrett Hartley hit a 40-yard field goal straight through the uprights in overtime to give the Saints a 31-28 victory and the club’s first trip to the Super Bowl. The Vikings took an early 7-0 lead on a 19-yard TD run by RB Adrian Peterson. The Saints tied the score when QB Drew Brees threw a screen to RB Pierre Thomas, which he took 38 yards for a TD. The Vikings took the lead back at the end of the first quarter on a five-yard scoring pass from QB Brett Favre to WR Sidney Rice. New Orleans took their first lead in the third quarter following a nine-yard TD pass from Brees to WR Devery Henderson and a nine-yard scoring run by Thomas. Peterson would run for two more TDs and CB Tracy Porter picked off Favre at the end of the fourth quarter to force overtime. The Saints opened up overtime with possession and scored on the drive.
