Brees and defensive stand help Saints survive Panthers | 31-26

Brees and defensive stand help Saints survive Panthers | 31-26

"Here I am, as a Cam Jordan, sending Cam Newton a bottle of Jordan wine". He only got one carry in the game, from the Panthers' goal line with 46 seconds remaining in the first half.

The Panthers (11-5) are hoping quarterback Cam Newton will rebound from his very bad performance - he completed 14-of-34 passes for 180 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions - during the 22-10 loss to Atlanta in Week 17. Newton was knocked out of the game a few minutes earlier after a hit by David Onyemata, but he somehow went through the concussion protocol in a matter of minutes and returned to nearly hand the Saints what would have been one of the most gut-wrenching losses in team history.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said after the game that Newton had been poked in the eye.

To their credit, the Panthers roared back after they appeared to be dead multiple times, and they're going to have a hard time getting over an intentional grounding call that thwarted their final drive.

It was testament to a defence that was aided all day by the Who Dats.

The Panthers are playing hundreds of miles away, but managers said that with the Panthers still playing, it makes a difference in their sales.

The rest of the game he had the noise meter pushed up every time he stood under centre. "But as the season went on, we kind of found our mojo". "You look at what they've been doing over the last four or five weeks". Certainly your cadence is not used and that's an advantage offensively if you can use your cadence.

It was a game of missed opportunities for the Panthers, who started out on top but saw a number of dropped catches and misfires when it mattered.

The NFL is "in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are complete", a spokesman said Sunday night, via NFL Media's Ian Rapoport.




"I told him I was coming all game", said Bell, who finished with seven tackles, the sack and a hurry.

The only first down the Saints had on their initial two possessions was the result of a penalty.

Former Buckeyes receivers Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr. both eclipsed the 100-yard mark with the latter scoring a touchdown, and then, safety Vonn Bell registered a game-high nine total tackles, including the game-clinching sack late in the fourth quarter of the Wildcard Playoffs matchup of NFC South Division teams.

The Saints lost starting left guard Andrus Peat to injury early in the second quarter.

Now, Te'o said, "We kind of know who we are and what we can do and what our strengths are. and also what things we need to work on". "It had like 10 stars beside it on the call sheet". The Panthers had held the ball for more than eight minutes, in what was then a scoreless game. In the second quarter, Newton hit Brenton Bursin on a crossing route with lots of open space but he tripped over the 28-yard line.

Brees completed 23 of 33 pass attempts for 376 yards including a 25 yard hookup with Hill that set up a one yard touchdown run by Zach Line propelling New Orleans to a 21-6 lead.

The Carolina Panthers have seen Cam Newton take some big hits over the years, but the one he took on Sunday against the New Orleans Saints was one of the biggest we've seen. Safety Mike Adams didn't get to Brees on blitzes on two TD throws.

"You just got to go out and play football", Ginn said.
