Dale Zanine-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints are holding on to a one point lead over the Falcons after the first half of play, with a score of 14-13. This is an incredibly even matchup so far.

Pierre Thomas has looked great, he has 60 yards rushing/receiving.  Jimmy Graham and Ben Watson have your touchdowns.

On defense, Corey White is getting picked on by Matt Ryan. Akiem Hicks is playing dominant football on the line.

The Falcons will start the second half with the ball.
