VIDEO: Jimmy Graham Scores Spectacular Go-Ahead Touchdown

When Alex Smith scored a fantastic touchdown for the San Fransisco 49ers to give them a lead, it felt like they scored too soon. That was probably the case, but Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham didn't need a whole lot of time to put his team back ahead with a fantastic touchdown pass. While under pressure on third down, Drew Brees put the ball in a spot where only Graham could catch it and he scored with a fantastic run after the catch. The Saints converted the two-point conversion to go up 32-29.

This is incredibly close to an interception, but a combination of a great pass location, a great catch and an indecisive DB turn it into a big play for the offense by the slimmest of margins.

Brees now has a ridiculous 62 pass attempts on the day. San Fransisco has just over a minute and a half to drive down the field and either force overtime or win the game.
