Rotund Saints fan shows his stomach as team misses crucial FG

Monday October 5th, 2015

The Saints needed a 30-yard field goal with 15 seconds remaining in regulation to defeat the Cowboys on Sunday night, and a New Orleans fan behind the uprights decided to help kicker Zach Hocker by providing his ample stomach as something to target.

Unfortunately the corpulent belly may have distracted Hocker, who hit the upright, allowing the game to head to overtime.

Luckily for both New Orleans and its fan, the team recovered in overtime with Drew Brees throwing an 80-yard touchdown pass for the victory.
