There are losses and then there are heart breaking losses. This one goes down as a heart breaker. A blocked extra point that was returned for a two-point conversion was the difference in a 25-23 loss to the defending Super Bowl champion Denver Broncos.
It appeared the Saints would take the lead with 1:22 left in the game, after New Orleans QB Drew Brees hit Brandin Cooks between three Denver defenders in the end zone for a 32-yard TD pass.

Quarterback Drew Brees threw for 367 yards and three touchdowns, but it wasn't enough for New Orleans to pull off a big win on the road as they fell to the Kansas City Chiefs 27-21.
There are two big reasons why New Orleans lost. They were penalized 10 times for 75 yards and turned it over twice, while failing to force a takeaway. More

It appeared the Saints were heading to an 0-4 record, but three San Diego turnovers in the 4th quarter helped New Orleans get an improbable 35-34 win over the Chargers.
It all started with just seven minutes left in the game and San Diego up 34-21. The Chargers were attempting to run the clock out, when running back Melvin Gordon fumbled at his own 13-yard line.
