NEW ORLEANS -- Green Bay just answered the question from our earlier post. How do you stop Drew Brees? Keep him off the field.

The Packers just ran off 6:35 off the clock here at the end of the second quarter, using a 14-play, 83-yard drive to make the score 21-21. The Packers converted four third downs on the drive, including Aaron Rodgers' 10-yard scramble on the final play for a touchdown.

We were going to say that the Packers managed to match Brees' effort in the first half, but Courtney Roby just returned the ensuing kickoff 62 yards to put Brees back in business. Check back with us at halftime.
