Saints 17 @ Packers 28: Second Half Open Thread

New, comments

Not exactly the start we wanted to see from the Saints tonight, who are down 28-17 to the Packers at the half. 

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay offense has come out firing, scoring easily and efficiently. That hasn't matched up well against a sloppy looking Saints defense with tackling and footing issues.

The good news is that the Saints have been able to put points on the board as well, both on offense and courtesy of a Darren Sproles punt return. If their defense can just get it together, the Saints can easily turn this game around. 

The Saints will get the ball to start the second half.
