Browns lead Saints 16-10


In one of the more surprising first half's during Week Two of the NFL, the Cleveland Browns are leading the New Orleans Saints 16-10.

The Browns' defense has stifled the normally potent Drew Brees, limiting him to 15-for-24, 109 passing yards, one touchdown and one interception. Cleveland's success had to do with an overall team effort. The secondary shined, not allowing the Saints' receivers to get open and the pass rush, headlined by Paul Kruger, made Brees get rid of the football quickly.

The biggest play of the half was Tashaun Gipson, who picked off Brees and returned the pass 62 yards for a touchdown.

On offense, quarterback Brian Hoyer engineered a nine-play, 51-yard touchdown drive in the first quarter, culminating in a Miles Austin touchdown reception. Terrance West led the way on the ground with 12 carries for 38 yards.

We'll have much more reaction after the game.
