What an offensive slug fest, eh?
All joking aside, it's been the defense that has been the story of the game. Great job by the Saints to shut down Michael Turner and the Falcons run game. Both teams are getting good pressure. A bobbled snap recovered by Jonathan Vilma has turned out to be huge, after the Saints scored their only touchdown on the subsequent drive courtesy of a Pierre Thomas run.
Buckle up for the second half because there's no question: it's going to be exciting.
