This Season's Defining Moments for the Saints

In today's Times-Picayune, the editors gave their list of the top 10 defining moments in the Saints season. There was one moment that was notably absent, and would certainly have made my top 10 list:

Jonathan Vilma's 4th down stop against the Falcons in Week 14 during the Falcons last drive to try to tie the game and send it into overtime.
(The highlight is at the 3:12 mark in the clip.)

Vilma's stop assured the Saints of their best regular season record as a franchise with 13 wins. And it was their last win of the season. Without that stop, the Saints may be at 12-4 and having to go to Minnesota for the NFC championship game on the road to the Superbowl.
