Whew. It took the New Orleans Saints about an hour of real time to burn through two quarters against the Green Bay Packers, reaching the halftime break up with a commanding 17-3 lead.

Jameis Winston led the offense into over 200 yards of offense and nearly 22 minutes of possession, going 3-of-6 on third downs and converting both of their fourth-down attempts (chipping in an Aldrick Rosas field goal from 44 yards out). A healthy dose of Alvin Kamara, smart decision-making by Winston, several huge plays by Marcus Davenport, and a stifling New Orleans defense has gotten them this far. Let’s see if they can seal the deal.

Of course it’s far from over. Aaron Rodgers is fuming on the opposing sideline and the Packers elected to receive the kickoff to start the second half. But Green Bay needs to get going in a hurry to cut into that deficit.
