Saints held scoreless in first half for first time this season

The Seattle Seahawks had the New Orleans Saints number the first time that the two teams met this season in Week 13, and so far their meeting in the divisional round of the NFL playoffs has been no different.

Seattle was able to control the ball for much of the first half as their defense stifled the Saints offense, which resulted in a 16-0 lead for the Seahawks at the half.

For New Orleans, it is the first time this season that the Saints were held scoreless in the first half of a season.

The Saints will need to find a way to get the ball rolling in the second half if they want to make the game interesting or else they are in danger of being blown out and watching the Seahawks advance to the NFC Championship game.
