Saints-Buccaneers First Half Score Update: Saints Lead Bucs 17-10 at Halftime

New, comments

The Saints offense and defense are both playing well enough to win this game as they lead the Buccaneers by a score of 17-10.

Reinhold Matay-USA TODAY Sports

The Saints lead the Buccaneers 17-10 after one half of play in Tampa Bay's Raymond James Stadium.

The offense for the Saints has played pretty well. Marques Colston has both touchdowns for the Saints. Willie Snead and Ben Watson are also contributing significantly.

Meanwhile the defense hasn't been nearly as terrible as we're used to this season, with the exception of too many penalties. Kyle Wilson has a whopping three penalties and of course Brandon Browner has one as well.

Below are the stats from the first half of the game.
