Saints beat Panthers, confident about rematch with Vikings

(On Sean Payton's decision to go for it on fourth and two late in fourth quarter) "He said, 'do you want to go for it or punt?' I said, 'do you have a play you like?' and he said 'Yeah.' So, I said, 'let's go for it.' End of discussion".
But Brees couldn't find an open receiver, was flushed out of the pocket and decided his best option was to throw it up for grabs.
Jordan, always quick with a joke, especially after a win, has taken pokes at Newton's sense of style, and the Panthers quarterback responded in kind in November by saying he'd send Jordan some "sauce". "I thought there was a receiver (Devin Funchess) in the vicinity". I truly believe that laughter is the best medicine.
"We tried to force him to be uncomfortable, we tried to force him to make errors, and I don't think he made many", Jordan said. Jordan, a newly named All-Pro, also tipped two passes and might have made his biggest play when he ran through two blockers to force Newton's intentional grounding.
Carolina answered on a 27-yard Graham Gano field goal but Brees then marched New Orleans 75 yards in nine plays, completing the five-minute drive with a 9-yard touchdown pass to Josh Hill for a 14-3 Saints lead.
"I was actually talking more to the other Kalil brother, I don't know his first name", Jordan said. No, it's not mine, but I have been drinking it for years. "If you are going to stack the box, try to stop the run and try to take us (running backs) out of the game, then he is going to hurt you". This raises the question of when the National Football League will get serious about enforcing the spirit of the rules instead of just padding them out with details when they're not followed.

There's a reason why Cam Newton's concussion was not correctly evaluated Sunday. The NFL and the players union will investigate, meaning the season will end with two ongoing investigations into the Panthers' business practices.
"At the end of the day, we did enough to win", Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan said.
Newton threw for 349 yards, his second highest total of the year, including a 56-yard touchdown pass to running back Christian McCaffrey that brought the Panthers within five with 4:09 to go. But the Saints also did a stellar job in free agency - which had arguably been the team's biggest shortcoming in recent years as they suffered through three straight 7-9 seasons.
Newton was sacked four times, once each by Bell, Jordan, Jonathan Freeney, and David Onyemata. The defense won't have to deal with Cam Newton, but Case Keenum has been good this season, and Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are one of the hardest duos to defend in the NFL. Newton initially walked to the sideline unaided before collapsing on the field.
At first, the Panthers QB would leave the game.
"We are in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are completed", the National Football League said in a written statement issued through a spokesman.
