The New Orleans Saints managed just a couple Shayne Graham field goals in the first half but the Philadelphia Eagles didn’t fare much better with only a Nick Foles 10-yard touchdown pass to Riley Cooper.
With the score 7-6, Eagles, heading out of the locker room at halftime and after a Philadelphia punt on their opening drive of the third frame, Saints’ quarterback Drew Brees connected with wide receiver Lance Moore on a 24-yard touchdown pass to give New Orleans the lead, 13-7, completing a 6-play, 53-yard drive.
Philadelphia went three-and-out on their subsequent drive and the Saints went right back to work following another Eagles’ punt.
New Orleans drove 66 yards spanning 8 plays and 4-minutes, 52-seconds and Mark Ingram punched it in from 4-yards out to extend the Saints’ lead to 20-7.
Ingram got hit right at the goal line but was able to maintain leverage and extend across the plane.

And the TD dance:
Ingram has 15 carries for 91 yards to go along with the touchdown while Brees has 187 yards on 16-of-24 passing for a TD and an interception.
Philadelphia has since scored a touchdown of their own on a 1-yard LeSean Mccoy run that capped off a 7-play, 65 yard drive to bring the game to within 20-14.
