Saints shut out Falcons in the first half, hold double-digit lead

NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) - The Saints owned a six-game winning streak in the Superdome. The Falcons won three straight against the Black and Gold. Something would give today. After a half, the Saints hold a 13-0 lead.

The big play of the first half came courtesy of a Drew Brees to Ted Ginn 54-yard touchdown connection. The big strike before half staked the Saints to a 13-0 advantage.

The Saints other points came courtesy of Wil Lutz field goals from 40 and 29 yards out.

Brees threw for 145 yards in the half, helping him go over 70,000 yards passing for his career.

On the defensive side of the ball for the Saints, Marshon Lattimore picked off Matt Ryan right before half. The ball deflected in the air, landed squarely on Lattimore's backside, and the rookie swung his body around for the interception.
