Halftime

This looks bad. But, it looks as expected. The score: Detroit 10, New Orleans 28. Here we go.

  • Failure to capitalize of Anthony Henry's (29) interception gave the Saints another opportunity to score, which they did. Another TD strike from Drew Brees to Tight End Jeremy Shockey made the score what it is now.
  • The Lions get the ball again and fail to convert. Matthew Stafford (9) throws his first career interception.
  • With less than a minute to go, the Saints MOVE the ball downfield. They come close to another TD but are stopped by great pass coverage from the secondary. Jon Carney's field goal attempt is BLOCKED. Great play, but would've been much more helpful had there still been time to put together a drive.
  • There is no excuse for giving up 28 points in one half. Game is a lost cause in terms of victory. I still think the Lions will make a game of it and score some more points before it's over.

In other news, New York Jets rookie QB Matt Sanchez threw his first career TD to Chansi Stuckey (spelling?). Matt Cassel is inactive for Kansas City. Didn't know Favre would be facing his old head coach today, Eric Mangini.

Let the third quarter begin.
