Drew Brees has led the New Orleans offense to a commanding 24-7 lead at halftime. Brees has been outstanding so far, going 16-for-21 with 243 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions.
In the final three minutes of the first half, Brees was able to lead his team on an eight-play, 51-yard drive that ended with a 20-yard pass to Lance Moore in the end zone.
That score gave the ball back to the Lions with 0:22 remaining in the half. Detroit was able to get itself into field goal range, but their field goal attempt was deflected and they came up empty.
