Buccaneers vs. Saints First Half Recap: Saints lead 14-28 at Halftime

Sean Gardner

Despite some questionable refereeing the New Orleans Saints have dominated the first half, while Drew Brees has a record fourth season (and third consecutive) with over 5,000 yards passing.

Drew Brees and the rest of the offense have had an excellent half of football, with several solid Mark Ingram runs, and multiple long passes to multiple Saints receivers... as New Orleans tries to secure a wildcard playoff berth with a defeat of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
