NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Niners raced out a 10-0 lead in the Dome, but the Saints answered back emphatically with 17 unanswered points. At the break, New Orleans holds the upper hand, 17-10.

Right before half, the Saints took the lead. Drew Brees connected with Alvin Kamara for a 3-yard touchdown, giving the Saints a 17-10 advantage.
