VIDEO: Remembering When Drew Brees Hit C.J. Spiller for a Game-Winning 80-Yard TD in OT Against the Cowboys
By Max Staley
The New Orleans Saints and Dallas Cowboys look poised to be among the NFC's best teams yet again in 2020. Recently, though, New Orleans has generally had the upper hand whenever these two have met, going 3-2 and winning by an average margin of 6.8 points per game.
Few of those games were as exciting as this Week 4 showdown in 2015, though.
On the first possession of a 20-20 tie in overtime, Sean Payton dials up the perfect play call. Drew Brees hits a wide-open wheel route, letting electric running back C.J. Spiller do the rest and take it to the house to end the game.
This was Brees' 400th career TD pass and it couldn't have come in a more memorable situation.
