Saints actually playing some defense

The Saints are playing some defense. They turned a turnover into their first touchdown, too.

The Seahawks lead 14-13 at halftime. Saints linebacker Nathan Stupar intercepted Russell Wilson, and the Saints scored on a Drew Brees sneak on third and goal. Brees launched himself over the center and into the end zone.

It’s turned wild after a slow start. The Seahawks got 43 yards on a trick play when Tanner McEvoy caught a backwards pass then threw a pass to C.J. Prosise. That set up a Christine Michael touchdown run, but Michael only has 3 yards rushing on the day.

Earl Thomas opened the scoring with a 34-yard fumble return touchdown. The Seahawks lined up to attempt a 56-yard field goal to end the first half but botched the delivery.
