New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees had an impressive first half against the Oakland Raiders. Brees went 12-for-17 for 150 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions as the Saints lead Oakland, 21-7.
Brees found Jimmy Graham in the end zone on a one yard pass in the first quarter and hit Lance Moore with a 38-yard strike just before the half. Brees has already completed passes to seven different receivers in the first half. Out of that group of receivers Marques Colston is leading the way with three receptions for 54 yards.
Last week Brees passes for 298 yards and three touchdowns against the Atlanta Falcons and is on pace for a similar performance against the Raiders. Coming into this game Brees averaged 316.3 yards per game and already had 25 touchdown passes.
The Saints hold a 14-point lead, but even if they put this game away in the third quarter expect them to continue to use their passing game.
