New, comments

At halftime, the Saints lead Carolina by three. Here we'll discuss what should be an exciting second half.

Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The New Orleans Saints hold a 16-13 lead over the Carolina Panthers as we head into the second half.  The Saints have made some surprisingly huge plays on defense and special teams.  The Saints are going to have to shore up some sloppiness in the second half, but this start has been encouraging so far.
