Panthers vs Saints Score Recap: Saints Lead Panthers 21-6 after First Half

New, comments

After a slow start to the game, the New Orleans Saints are fighting strong against the Carolina Panthers, leading them by a score of 21-6 at the end of the first half.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sport

The New Orleans Saints defense is holding strong, holding the Carolina Panthers to two field goals while Drew Brees and company got their act together.  Since then, however, the Saints have scored three unanswered touchdowns -- two by Colston, and one by Graham -- and look to keep their momentum going when they receive the ball to start the second half.
