The New Orleans Saints and Miami Dolphins are at halftime of their Monday Night Football duel, and the Saints have a major advantage over the Dolphins at 21-10.

Let’s take a quick look at some thoughts about the highly entertaining half.

The Good

– The Saints defense forced a turnover by taking advantage of Ryan Tannehill’s fumbling issues, and just in time on a major drive.

– Jimmy Graham got his with a major touchdown reception. Like we said earlier, Graham needed to step up.

– Darren Sproles continued to be unstoppable and recorded over 100 total yards halfway through the second quarter. 

– Jabari Greer stepped up with a major interception.

– Darren Sproles scores!

The Bad 

– The offensive line continues to struggle as Drew Brees was sacked for the 11th time this season.

– The run defense looked soft on Lamar Miller’s touchdown run.

– The defense allowed a major play out of the backfield and flashed signs of last year’s unit that missed plenty of tackles and blew assignments.


– None!
