• Hartley kicks Saints to late win over Niners

    Summary of 4 articles · Updated Nov 18, 2013
    Hartley had missed four of his previous six field goals, but hit the late kicks when they counted the most. It was similar to the way things worked out in 2009, when Hartley was slumping late in the regular season before making the game-winning kick in the NFC Championship Game and three big kicks in the Super Bowl. The Saints have trusted Garrett Hartley, but they let him know last week it wasn’t unconditional. Moreover, they produced two clutch three-and-outs in the final 7 minutes to get the ball back to the offense and set up Hartley's heroics. “Garrett has had his ups and downs throughout his career, but he has made a lot of big kicks for us. All the talk coming into the game was about the 49ers defense, but the Saints unit stole the spotlight. He'd missed four of his past six field-goal attempts coming into the game, but came through on Sunday with three clutch field goals in the decisive fourth quarter.
