Michael Thomas had just finished off his best game of the season with nine catches in the Saints' win over the Falcons, but it was a ball he didn't catch that he was quick to elaborate on.
The Saints' star receiver was asked a question about a play later in the game, but he backtracked to the uncharacteristic, "terrible drop" from the first half that was still on his mind.
Thomas was standing by himself as Taysom Hill fired a ball to him across the middle of the field. But instead of a big gain to continue a promising drive, the ball squirted through Thomas' normally reliable hands.
