Cardinals Vs. Saints, 2012 Hall Of Fame Game: New Orleans Wins 17-10

After a long off-season, the NFL "returned" with the New Orleans Saints' 17-10 victory over the Arizona Cardinals in the Hall of Fame Game.

Drew Brees led New Orleans down the field for a touchdown in his only series, but the big story was Kevin Kolb's rib contusion, which knocked him out of the game after an ugly 1-for-4 day with one interception.

The first and second stringers took the offense with him when they left at halftime, as the two teams combined to score only three points in the second half.

Undrafted QBs Ryan Lindley (Fresno State) and Sean Canfield (Oregon State) got all the snaps in the fourth quarter. Bonus points for whoever knows which team each played for.
