Among the silver linings in the New Orleans Saints' 30-27 stirring comeback win over the Dallas Cowboys was the solid performance of kicker Garrett Hartley.

Despite some high hikes from long snapper Justin Drescher -- the team's third long snapper in as many games -- holder Chase Daniel got the ball down, and Hartley smoked each kick through the uprights in impressive fashion.
