Proper Clock Management

Good job at the end of Sunday's game by Sean Payton - New Orleans was tied and driving inside Philly's 10 yard-line with 2 minutes left, and Philly had no time outs. Instead of handing the ball off and giving the Eagles the option of letting the running back score and getting the ball back with time on the clock. Payton had Drew Brees take a knee three times, run the clock to three seconds and kick the game winning field goal.

Had the Saints handed it off, I'm pretty sure Andy Reid would have been smart enough to tell the defense to let the back score. Payton took that option away from him and settled for a 90 percent chip-shot FG.
