Saints come back to take 17-13 lead at half, set record

Drew Brees AP

The Saints are already, officially, the worst defense in NFL history at preventing yards.

They’re also winning.

The Saints scored a pair of touchdowns in a 43-second span, one from Drew Brees to Marques Colston and the other on a Jonathan Vilma interception return, to take a 17-13 lead at halftime over the Panthers.

But the Panthers have gained 287 yards in the first half, allowing the 1981 Baltimore Colts to no longer be the worst defense of all time. The 1981 Colts allowed 6,793, and the Saints are standing on 6,799 allowed, with a half to play.

    Vilma should keep the ball, and ask The Great Roger Goodell Himself Live And In Person to autograph it when The Great One Himself comes to N’Awlins for the Super Bowl.

    In no whatsoever, dis-resprict to the NO team, this was a type of record that was going to be overcome, in this day of over-hyped offensive.
