With under a minute remaining, Davis made a catch and massive run for 47 yards, down to the New Orleans 20-yard line. At that time, it felt like a field goal attempt and overtime was looming, but Davis took things into his own hands on 3rd and 4 from the 14-yard line. Smith made a great throw, but the route, catch and ability to hold on through a hit by Roman Harper was even more impressive.
