The Baltimore Ravens took a 14-7 halftime lead over the New Orleans Saints on Thursday night at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in the final preseason game of the season.
Chase Daniel started at quarterback for the Saints and played the entire half. He connected with tight end Josh Hill on a 16-yard touchdown with 15 seconds left in the half for the Saints' only points.
Early in the first quarter Daniel had a pass intercepted by Ravens defensive tackle Carl Davis. The Ravens scored a few plays later on a 1-yard Ryan Mallett pass to Chris Moore. The Ravens scored their second touchdown on 2-yard run by Bobby Rainey. That possession was set up when Baltimore blocked a Wil Lutz field-goal attempt.
The Saints' second turnover was a Daniel Lasco fumble. But the Saints defense quickly got the ball back as Al-Quadin Muhammad had a sack-forced fumble that was recovered by defensive tackle David Onyemata.
