Saints vs. Buccaneers First Half Score Recap: New Orleans Leads 13-10

New, comments

Halftime!! Do what you need to do and get back here, stat, for the third quarter with the Saints, Buccaneers and your fellow CSC members.

The Saints finally get in the end zone on a 15-yard Pierre Thomas screen pass! Even better than that welcomed sight was a drive-killing interception by Patrick Robinson on a deep pass to Vincent Jackson! This great second quarter start didn't last as the Bucs scored late with a FG and then a TD after a Drew Brees interception.

The sight of so many Saints on the turf with injury is very concerning. Jimmy Graham, Zach Strief, and Jonathan Goodwin all appeared to get dinged up and leave the field in the second quarter. Graham is 'probable' to return after going to the locker room to get his shoulder examined.

Check the stats below and then jump back into the Open Thread fray!
