Saints go up 14-6 on Panthers

After a half of play, Panthers safety Mike Mitchell probably doesn’t think Drew Brees is “soft” any longer.

The Saints have gone up 14-6 over the Panthers in the second quarter, cashing in with touchdowns where the Panthers have settled for field goals.

After taking the lead with a nine-play, 80-yard touchdown drive, the Saints just tacked on another Marques Colston touchdown.

After an early three-and-out, Brees has caught fire, 11-of-15 passing for 107 yards and two scores.

The Panthers haven’t been able to get any pressure on him, and he’s picking apart a secondary that plays hard, but isn’t talented enough to match up with his multiple weapons.
