Saints vs. Panthers Halftime Score: Saints Trail Carolina, 24-3

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.

Win now, Saints.
Win now, Saints.
Matt Stamey-USA TODAY Sports

Well, the Saints managed to get on the board finally, but not much else.  The defense has made a few 3rd down stops now, but the offense has failed to close drives with TDs, including one missed FG, and the Saints find themselves in a 24-3 hole.

The high point for the Saints has been two 30+ yard punt returns for the Saints by Jalen Saunders, but they have only resulted in three points total.

Junior Galette, Terron Armstead, and now Keenan Lewis seem to be hurt/injured, so it may be case of NEXTMANUP when we start looking for heroes to shine.

The Panthers have lost a backup TE to ejection during a scrum in the end zone after a Cam Newton TD dive, and that "wake up fight" has not really woken anyone up. GUH.

The Saints desperately need a touchdown drive to start the second half. Make it so, No. 9!!
