Saints lead Titans 21-17 at the half
The New Orleans Saints lead the Tennessee Titans in a penalty ridden first half of play in the Superdome on Friday night.
Many Saints starters including quarterback Drew Brees are sitting out this game, but both teams are having success moving the ball and scoring.
22 first half penalties have slowed the pace of play down to a snails crawl at times, and there were a fair share of mistakes.
Saints quarterback Luke McCown had a pair of touchdown tosses to tight end Jimmy Graham and his night ended with a 12 of 19 performance for 117 yards and no interceptions.
Running back Mark Ingram led a meager rushing attack with 19 yards on five carries, but Ingram did score on a dump off pass for the 23 yard go-ahead touchdown.
