Saints vs. Bengals Halftime Score: Saints Down 13-3

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-Bengals game as it unfolds.

Win now, Saints.
Win now, Saints.

Well, it could be worse. The Saints offense can't finish to save its' life, and the defense couldn't stop a running nose right now.

Still and all, the Saints only trail by 10, 13-3 at the half, after giving up a 60+ yard run and a chip-shot FG in garbage time as the half ticked down to :00.

It would be nice to see a defensive stop and a complementary TD by the offense to get things moving back in the right direction as we open the second half.
