New Orleans Saints head coach Sean Payton said the lateral play at the end of regulation against the Seattle Seahawks in the divisional round was planned, but it involved poor execution by WR Marques Colston. The play was supposed to be a lateral across the field to RB Travaris Cadet, but Colston struggled with the execution. Payton admitted that the play was probably called too early, as well. "It's a play that we worked on," Colston said. "Obviously, it's not an ideal situation (being behind with time expiring and no timeouts), but the ball came out. And obviously the throw didn't go the way I would have planned. But, it happens."
