The New Orleans Saints had another forgettable performance last week against the San Francisco 49ers.
The defense played well, but the offense made big mistakes in the crucial moments of the game.
One of those plays was a pass to tight end Juwan Johnson in the end zone. Johnson has been a breakout player for the Saints this year and one of Andy Dalton’s favorite targets. Alas, on this play, he couldn’t come up with the touchdown catch.
It was one of a handful of drops in the end zone for the Saints.
QB Jameis Winston had a hilarious reaction to Johnson’s mishap.

His reaction embodies how Saints fans have felt all season.
They want to get excited. The struggles from New Orleans prevent that at every corner they turn.
For Winston, this year has been frustrating as well.
He was banged up with injuries early in the season and lost his starting job. Now, healthy and ready to prove himself, the Saints have been rolling with Andy Dalton consistently.
Winston wants to get on the field for the Saints, but it hasn’t been happening. Only time will tell if the gets another shot as the starting quarterback.
Regardless, his demeanor and comradely on the sideline shows you how much he cares about his football team.
