FAKE FIELD GOAL ALERT! FAKE FIELD GOAL ALERT! (VIDEO)

See Colts, that’s how you pull off a fake on special teams.

The Saints just pulled off a beauty of a fake field goal, with the holder, backup quarterback Luke McCown, taking the snap and rolling to his left. Tight end Benjamin Watson split off the formation and ran 20 yards downfield, uncovered. McCown hit him in stride for a 25-yard gain and the Saints scored on the next play for a 7-0 lead.

I hope Griff Whalen wasn’t watching.
