New Orleans Saints 21, Carolina Panthers 9

13 January, 2018, 01:29 | Author: Carla Brady
  • How did the Panthers statistically finish out the regular NFL season?

"We nearly let them back in the game, but here I am standing as victor".

Newton returned to the game shortly after. Fullback Zach Line scored on a one-yard plunge the next play to put the Saints up 21-6 with 43 seconds left before the break. The offense had been forced to live on the arm of Drew Brees, and although it worked well, the Panthers still kept New Orleans' offense one-dimensional throughout the game.

When it takes four seconds to decide whether to throw a flag on a blatant pass interference, in which the cornerback tackled the receiver by the ankles before the ball arrived, the officiating has to be questioned.

Newton was slow to get up after New Orleans Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata hit him with 8 minutes, 26 seconds remaining in the Panthers' 31-26 loss. "I thought that maybe somebody had stuck a finger in my eye".

"They took him in there as a precautionary just to make sure", Rivera said.

"I feel like it was kind of taken away from us".

Meanwhile, Saints coach Sean Payton will be trying to change or disguise most everything his offense has done against the Panthers, which may be hard as those old plays accounted for 400 yards in the 31-21 win and 362 yards in the 34-13 victory.




Brees' touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill. Newton found running back Chris McCaffrey on a relatively shallow crossing route and the speedy rookie did the rest, racing 56 yards for a touchdown that pulled the Panthers back within five points with 4:09 to play. "The ball was spread around quite a bit and guys were making plays when they had the chances". That pass put the Saints in front of the Panthers, 7-0, in the first quarter and they never trailed in the game.

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.

We already know the San Francisco 49ers will be selecting with either the ninth or tenth pick in April's draft, depending on the result of a coin flip with the Oakland Raiders in February. "It was just big to come up with those plays".

With the Panthers in position for their first lead, Newton was called for intentional grounding, which cost 13 yards, a loss of down and a 10-second runoff.

Carolina Panthers kicker Graham Gano misses a field goal during the first quarter of Sunday's National Football League wild-card playoff game at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

"Had half of those been touchdowns, we'd be sitting in a different spot", Jordan said. (Can't guard) Mike Thomas, with a game-high 131 yards on eight grabs, was just as his Twitter handle suggests.

"That's an experienced team that's been in the playoffs - seasoned, ready", Saints Coach Sean Payton said of the Panthers. Newton, who was drafted first overall by Carolina in 2011, said after the game that he has a really good relationship with Richardson. Kaelin Clay dropped a perfectly thrown pass by Newton in the end zone, forcing the Panthers to settle for a field-goal try (unsuccessful). The quarterback from Abilene Wylie and later Houston has stepped into the spotlight in Minneapolis after injuries suffered by Sam Bradford early in the year.
