It looks like the Saints may not punt much -- if at all -- today, but Carolina has found a way to keep this game even so far at 7-7 midway through the second quarter.
Each time New Orleans has had the ball the Saints have driven from 50-90 yards and seemed to be going in for TDs, but on two of those marches James Anderson has now recovered fumbles.
The second time came when New Orleans running back Chris Ivory looked like he was breaking free for a possible TD but got upended by Richard Marshall at Carolina's 21. Ivory fumbled, Anderson won a scrum to recover and even though New Orleans holds a huge advantage in yardage, Carolina has won the turnover battle 2-0 so far and it's still 7-7.
