"Lattimore's first interception proved to be the turning point in the game's momentum."

"Thomas' touchdown catch proved to be the difference-making score."

Congrats for making the tOSU PROUD.

Thomas averaging 9 rec 129 yards and 1 TD in 3 career playoff games. He's a beast. Lattimore too.

Great game for the buckeye greats! Ginn also did the deed a few times getting out in front of Thomas for blocks. No dice in this game but proud to see the buckeyes representing. 

Do I have to put something down here?

Had Brees not underthrown the ball to Ginn the first play of the game, it would have been an easy TD. Ginn had his guys smoked.

Congratulations to Thomas Lattimore.

For next weekend, go Saints and go Chiefs!

I like the Saints the best out of the remaining teams because of the Buckeye talent they have, but I will root for anyone other than New England in the playoffs. I've been tired of them winning, for the last decade.

First it was Carolina, now it's the Saints. We need a NFL team that just drafts Buckeyes.

And yet the committee left these guys out of the 2016 playoffs because of a last second 3pt. Loss to MSU.  Shame. Shame. 

Congrats to the New Orleans Buckeyes, tho.

You win with people. 

And so forth...

9 Units Strong!

All the NFL former BUCKEYES who played this weekend played well !  That makes watching the playoffs more enjoyable.

"Defensively, a trio of former Buckeyes – Lattimore, Eli Apple and Vonn Bell – each recorded four tackles."

Hell yea. I wish Malcom Jenkins (who also had a big game) would've gone back to the Saints to finish his career.

Could have had a TD if Brees didn't underthrown him on that first play.

Yes Ginn dusted his man but Brees under-threw him which led to the INT.   Yes, Ginn is still fast.....

Apple had a good game, and the announcers confirmed for all of America to hear that he had reclaimed his career - they mentioned, you know, first round pic of the Giants, didn't do that well there.... but since coming to NO he had played great. 

And Vonn Bell, who IIRC wasn't even drafted?.... smothered their TE several times. 

Redemption for these guys!

Nah that was Tyvis who wasn't drafted. Vonn was drafted round 2

The amount of Buckeye coverage was amazing! Three straight plays, I believe, was Lattimore, Bell and then Apple. After which the announcers expressed how a fresh change of scenery can help a player (Apple). I sat there smiling with a beer.

The other playoff game they had players give their names and where they were from with no buckeyes but I didn't see that in this game. Did they while I was making food? I really wanted to hear 'from thee Ohio State university' several times.

Fox didn’t have the players do that.  They had a graphic that showed names / position but not the school.  Barely had time to even read the graphic.  You didn’t miss anything.  I wanted to see and hear that as well.

It's an valuable tool in recruiting when high school kids see Buckeyes succeeding in the NFL. Joey Bosa, Zeke, Samuel, all the Saints players etc. It shows that we develop our players for the next level. Come play at Ohio State because it can put you on the road to the NFL. Love It!!!
