Are the road woes over for the Saints?

At least for now they are, as the Black and Gold picking up their first road win with a 28-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers. The win snaps a 7 game regular season road losing streak. 

New Orleans at (4-4), take the lead in the NFC South with the victory. 

Mark Ingram ran for 100 yards for the second consecutive game, a first in a career, while also adding two touchdowns. Drew Brees completing 24-34 passes for 297 yards, a touchdown and an interception. Brees also sneaking in for a 1 yard score in the 3rd quarter. 

It was an ugly first half of football, as the first score of the game didn't come until time was winding down in the second quarter.

New Orleans Saints running back Mark Ingram cashed in with a three yard rushing dive up the middle following a Carolina Panther fumble forced by Saints defensive lineman Junior Gallette.

The Saints offense had been largely held in check despite being able to move the ball between the twenties. Two turnovers by Saints quarterback Drew Brees stymied what were good looking offensive drives early in the game. 

The Saints would rally with a two minute drive that capped the final play of the first half with a one yard touchdown strike to tight end Jimmy Graham in the corner of the endzone for the second score of the game to give the Saints a 14-0 halftime lead.
