Saints Lead Raiders 14-0 to Start the Second Quarter

Posted by NewOrleansSaints.com on 11/18/2012 – 9:52 pm

Oakland won the coin toss and chose to receive to begin the two team’s first matchup since 2008. The Saints defense was able to hold the Raiders on the opening possession and forced a punt by P Shane Lechler.

Starting at their own 20-yard line, QB Drew Brees and the Saints offense wasted no time moving the ball down the field. Brees completed five of six passes for 41 yards while RBs Mark Ingram and Pierre Thomas added 39 yards on the ground. Brees capped off the drive with a one-yard touchdown pass to TE Jimmy Graham, extending his NFL-record streak of consecutive games with a TD pass to 53. K Garrett Hartley made the extra point to give the Saints a 7-0 lead.

Then, following a three-and-out by both teams, Palmer fired a pass intended for TE Brandon Myers but the ball was intercepted by S Malcolm Jenkins. Jenkins returned the ball 55 yards the other way for a Saints touchdown and Hartley added the extra point to give the Saints a 14-0 first quarter advantage.
