Drew Brees put the New Orleans Saints on top with a deep pass to Joe Morgan.

The 0-3 New Orleans Saints have a rare lead, over the Green Bay Packers of all teams. Drew Brees hit Joe Morgan for an 80-yard touchdown pass that gave the Saints a 24-21 lead over the Packers.

Morgan pulled away from a pair of Packers defensive backs on his way down the field for the score.

The whole thing is Aaron Rodgers' fault. Kind of. Rodgers left the game briefly after being poked in the eye. His replacement, Graham Harrell, tripped and muffed the handoff on his first NFL play. Fumble. New Orleans took over and three plays later had this touchdown.
