The Saints got off to a fast start in the first half of their matchup against the Jaguars both on offense and defense, taking an early 14-0 lead. That's exactly what we all wanted to see from the team for a change. But the Jaguars have scored 10 unanswered points since then and are inexcusably still in this game after one half of play. 

Jed Collins and Jimmy Graham are your touchdown scorers. Darren Sproles has been featured prominently. On defense, Jabari Greer has come up big in pass defense; Roman Harper and Will Smith have a sack each. 

Saints get the ball to start the second half. They need to take charge of this game and quickly shut the door on the Jags. Fortunately, the Saints have shined in the second half so far this season.
