The Patriots had a chance to cut into the Saints 24-10 lead, but unfortunately couldn't put together a scoring drive on their final possession before the half.  Brady and company put together a 10-play drive that began at their own 20, but couldn't come away with any points after their drive stalled at the Saints 32 yard line and kicker Stephen Gostkowski missed a 50-yard field goal attempt wide left.

The good news is they'll have the ball to start the second half.
