Baltimore - The New Orleans Saints trail the Baltimore Ravens 10-7 at halftime on Sunday at M&T Bank Stadium.
Baltimore scored on a 1-yard touchdown run by backup quarterback Lamar Jackson with four seconds left in the half and on kicker Justin Tucker's 31-yard field goal with 6:04 to play in the second quarter.
The Saints scored their lone touchdown on a 1-yard pass from Drew Brees to tight end Benjamin Watson with 1:53 to play. The touchdown pass was the 500th of his career, making Brees the fourth quarterback in NFL history to hit that milestone. All of the points came in the final six minutes and seven seconds of the half.
The Saints had an amazing 20-play opening drive that featured three conversions on fourth down - including one on a fake punt - but couldn't convert on fourth-and-1 from the 4-yard line as Alvin Kamara couldn't handle Taysom Hill's pitch. Hill played extensively on the drive that lasted 10 minutes and three seconds.
The Ravens' scoring drive was a lengthy one as well - 17 plays eating up 7:23 - that also featured a fourth-down conversion.
