The Baltimore Ravens came into New Orleans on Monday night and became the third team in a row to beat the Saints at home.
The final score: 34-27.
Itâ€™s the first time in 13 years the Saints have lost three straight in the Superdome.
New Orleans managed to take a lead into the half, but the Ravens tied it up with a field goalâ€¦ and then Drew Brees threw a pick-6 (an interception returned for a touchdown) right to Baltimore safety Will Hill.
Opposing teams have not missed a field goal against the Saints all year.
