NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Drew Brees threw for four touchdowns and 300 yards in the first half to open up a huge lead for the Saints.

The Giants took the lead early when Quarterback Eli Manning punctuated their opening drive with a 2-yard touchdown pass to Odell Beckham Jr. on fourth down.

The Saints would take control from there.

The defense stepped up to hold the Giants to just 14 more points in the half and Drew Brees hit Colston, Cooks and Snead (Twice!) for touchdown passes to open up a 28-21 lead at the half.

Khiry Robinson was carted off the field in the second quarter after a goal-line carry. Trainers put Robinson's right leg into an air cast before taking him off the field.

Giants will receive the ball to start the second half.
