Saints fumble away late momentum on curious call vs. Packers

NEW ORLEANS (AP) After what looked like a game-turning, fourth-down stop in the fourth quarter, the New Orleans Saints fumbled away a chance to pull ahead of the potent Packers.

The momentum-squandering play led to a rare Sunday night home loss and the mistake-prone Saints' first two-game losing streak in three years.

New Orleans had been 9-0 on Sunday nights under Drew Brees and coach Sean Payton, but Payton's curious decision to replace Brees for one down backfired this time.
