New Orleans Saints Suffered a close loss Sunday for Kansas City Chiefs in a game that could have been played in any play.
Cam Jordan believes he personally spent on the Saints game with a play that knocked him out in the fourth quarter.
Jordan was sent off for stabbing Andrew Wiley in the Kansas City offensive line with a helmet, 21-15 13:55, with the Chiefs taking the lead. The Saints’ defensive decision imposed a 15-yard incompetent fine for the incident, which involved Jordan Wiley while rushing Patrick Mohams.
Is it worth the expulsion?
Cam Jordan is called for unnecessary toughness here. As he tried to get out of this block, his arm rose high.

Mahomes threw incompletely in the second down game of the New Orleans 26-yard line. Instead of third and ninth in the next play, the Saints faced first and 10th out of 13 after the chiefs fined Jordan. Levine Bell ran to Touch Town for the next play.
The Saints line up for that play and for the rest of the game without Jordan.
Jordan was responsible for the loss
Jordan noted that he did not agree with the dismissal after the game, but took the blame on the play, and said it would cost the Saints the game.
No apologies! No matter how I feel about it, the only crime that can be eliminated is the result, I hurt the team, in a crucial move in the 4th QTR! It’s on me! This loss is for me! Can’t walk! I will be fine with any correction

Bell Touchdown extended Kansas City’s lead to 29-15, and a Saints Rally fell to Kansas City’s 32-29 victory.
Sean Payton, the head coach of the Saints, who has been known to disagree with referees in the past, has no qualms about deciding to expel Jordan.
“We always talked about playing emotionally, but not emotionally,” Payton said. “They push back and forth. I see what the officers saw. They saw it as a blow or a punch to the head. We have to be smart.”
