Saints vs. Falcons TNF Halftime Score: Saints Lead 14-7

At Halftime, the Saints hold a seven point lead over Atlanta as they try to secure an upset victory over the undefeated Falcons.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints find themselves going into halftime with a surprising 14-7 lead over the Atlanta Falcons.  The Saints are playing some inspired football here, forcing turnovers in the red zone, finding a semblance of a pass rush, and picking up a very memorable play in the process.

The biggest play of the game season so far, has been a beautifully poetic blocked punt by Mandeville, LA native, Michael Mauti, with Saints icon Steve Gleason in attendance.  That play will be remembered all season long, and hopefully the Saints can carry this first half momentum into the second half.
