Well, it's been a first half full of fireworks all over the field.
While bringing some unexpected heat and pressure on Michael Vick, the Saints defense continues to give up yards and miss tackles like they're going out of style, but only yielded 3 points and even scored on a 99-yard Pick 6 by CB Patrick Robinson, and the Saints lead 21-3 at the half.
Late in the second quarter, a one-yard touchdown pass to Marques Colston allowed Brees to extend his consecutive games with a TD pass to 51, and pull Colston (54) within one touchdown of tying Deuce McAllister for the Saints all-time touchdown mark of 55.
We've also seen a resurgence of the running game (106 yards on 10 carries) with a TUSK!!!! sighting in the backfield, and then in the end zone, too! All the backs have run hard and well so far.
Review the stats below and then jump right into the second half discussion!
