Saints vs. Panthers Halftime Score Recap: Saints Lead 14-0 After Two Quarters.

New, comments

It's halftime, bitches! Do what you have to do then get back here to chat up the first half results and discuss the 3rd quarter of the Saints-Panthers game as it unfolds.

The New Orleans Saints had their offense humming for their first two possessions of the game. Alas, both resulted in turnovers. Since then, the Saints offense has sputtered and punter Thomas Morstead has had a busy night.

The Carolina Panthers haven't been better, as they've turned the ball over twice as well, including a Cam Newton fumble deep in Panthers territory that led to a two-yard Mark Ingram rushing touchdown.

At halftime, the score is 14-0 with the Saints running a somewhat "picture imperfect" two-minute drill that saw a Brees' fumble, a Panthers' pass interference in the end zone and finally a touchdown pass from Brees to Jimmy Graham with three seconds left.

Let's see in the second  half if the Saints can keep this lead and maybe build on it.
