Cam Newton cuts short postgame news conference after loss to Saints

But in the end, Carolina needed a secondary, not the NFL MVP, as it had no answer for New Orleans quarterback Drew Brees in Sunday's 41-38 loss to the Saints. Drew Brees completed six of his next seven passes, putting New Orleans in range for Wil Lutz's game-winning 52-yard field goal. Brees threw for 465 yards and four touchdowns Sunday while breaking a tie with Peyton Manning for the most regular season 400+ yard passing games.

The Panthers' various units have taken turns losing games this season.

Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly credited Carolina's offense for playing well and added, "We just have to tighten some things up defensively".

But after the Panthers piled up 406 yards and 38 points, the Saints are now allowing 33.6 points per game, which ranks last in the National Football League, and 419.4 yards per game, which ranks second-to-last. The Panthers picked up a first down on a 7-yard reception by Kelvin Benjamin.

2nd Quarter 9:04 - Panthers 0, Saints 21.

Newton completed 27 of 47 passes for 322 yards and two TDs against New Orleans. The loss marks the third time this season the Carolina Panthers have had a game decided by a field goal within the final minute.

By unofficial estimates, that is 59 seconds shorter than his Super Bowl 50 postgame press conference.

Brees appeared to be targeting wide receiver Willie Snead on the play, but Fleener undercut the route and snagged the ball out of the air, running the last 25 yards untouched. "You work so hard, you beat the speed bump in front of you, then you hit the quarterback, and you look down and he doesn't have the ball any more, and you're just wondering how".

She also engaged the concierge in conversation, saying, "Are we gonna die?" to which he responded, "I don't know". Now two more shows scheduled for this week have been moved over what promoters call "family concerns".

"We want to be on this trajectory", Brees said as he moved his hand up and away from his body.

"He's a warrior", said tight end Ed Dickson, who caught Newton's second touchdown pass. "He gave us a chance to win". It featured a 75-yard touchdown catch and a 43-yard reception that set up one of Josh Browns two field goals. While it is still early in the season the Saints must approach every game as a must-win from here on out.

"I think it was good for everybody to see their mistakes as a whole, not just a separate group", Vaccaro said. He's now on pace for a 1,309-yard season.

That's a lot of pressure for two rookie corners, Zack Sanchez making his first career start and Daryl Worley making his second, because of injuries to starters James Bradberry and Robert McClain. At least Carolina won't lose again next Sunday - the Panthers have a bye.

Four of the Saints' five games this season have come down to the last possession.

In the second half, the Panthers defense held the Saints to a more respectable 17 points.

There were 10 different players who caught a ball for New Orleans, three of them racked up at least 70 receiving yards and Sanchez, who's still experiencing those growing pains, relinquished a ideal 158.3 passer rating to Brees whenever he was targeted.
