There was one huge unanswered question following the Saints 23-15 playoff loss to Seattle on Saturday: Was Marques Colston's lateral on the final play of the game a called by the Saints coaching staff or did Colston go rogue and decide to make an unplanned lateral across the field?

Saints coach Sean Payton didn't really answer the question when he was asked about it after the game, but he did it answer it on Monday. Payton said Colston's lateral was planned and that the Saints called the play because they saw something on film that made them think it would work.

Payton did concede that he might have called the play to early. There were 13 seconds left when Brees took a third-and-2 snap from the Saints own 49.
