Saints 23, Raiders 7: First Half Recap

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

Here's your first half recap and second half open thread for the Saints-Raiders preseason game. Dig into the stats and discuss how the game is unfolding in the comment section!! Grab your depth charts everyone, because from here forward it's backups galore!

The New Orleans Saints lead the Oakland Raiders 23-7 at halftime of this second preseason game in 2013, with the Saints starters working most, if not all of the first half.

I don't care whether it's the bad Raiders defense or the good offense of the Saints, but I sure enjoyed the start of this game, as the N.O. starters grooved their way to 23 consecutive points to open the first half scoring. Drew Brees has put on a clinic, and Morstead has not punted once.

On the other side of the ball, LB Ramon Humber is tearing it up with a couple of sacks and numerous tackles, while the defense (again, or the Raiders offense) has notched 5 sacks overall, and is stifling Oakland's offensive output.

Check into the full stats below and let us know how you're feeling!!

Here's a link to the Raiders SB Nation site...but be nice if y'all go over there.
