Saints Enjoying Comfortable 21-7 Lead Over Raiders: First Half Recap

Ezra Shaw

Everything is going according to plan as the Saints sit pretty after one half of play in Oakland.

The Saints currently enjoy a comfortable 21-7 lead over the Oakland Raiders thanks to two interceptions, including a pick six by Malcolm Jenkins.

Drew Brees and the offense are in regular form with touchdown passes to Jimmy Graham and Lance Moore. The running game has also looked good in limited action.

Right tackle Charles Brown was taken to the locker room for a knee evaluation so undrafted rookie Bryce Harris has had to fill in. It's not going so well.

I expect more of the same from the Saints in the second half en route to a dominating win.

Complete first half stats are below.
