Saints trail Cardinals 14-10 at the half

NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Despite a shaky defensive start, the Saints are within one score at the half, trailing the Arizona Cardinals, 14-10.

Arizona marched 80 yards on the game's opening possession, with Carson Palmer completing five of his first six passes. Palmer found John Brown for a 10-yard touchdown to put Arizona up 7-0.

The Saints responded with a 37-yard field goal from rookie kicker Zach Hocker to make it 7-3.

In the second quarter, Arizona engineered its second touchdown drive, taking advantage of multiple Saints miscues. First, Palmer hit a wide open Darren Fells for a 48-yard catch and run. Then a defensive pass interference call on Delvin Breaux gave the Cardinals a first and goal situation. Andre Ellington cashed in on a one-yard touchdown run, and Arizona went up 14-3.

After a Cardinals penalty gave New Orleans a key first down, the Saints would score their second touchdown on a Brees to Brandon Coleman connection, with Coleman shaking a tackle from Tyrann Mathieu and diving for the pylon. New Orleans cut the deficit to 14-10.

Brees was 15-21 for 125 yards and the TD in the first half.

    De La Salle doesn't own a state title in football YET. But after watching the Cavs beat Class 4A heavyweight Karr, I'm convinced this squad has their best shot to win the crown in 2017. Quarterback Julian Gums is one of the best in the state. If he wears down, running back Kendall Collins can take over. Collins racked up three touchdowns against a very strong Karr defense. 1) John Curtis The Patriots absolutely thrashed Parkview Baptist 66-28 in Baton Rouge. October 27th can't get h...

    Ja'Marr Chase will show off his talents in the Under Armor All-Star Game come January in Florida. It's the who's who of top players in the country, and Chase is no doubt in that class.
