    Panthers Beat The Saints, Take 1st In NFC South​

    Charlotte, NC- Pepper Hicks Reporting


    The Panthers hosted the New Orleans Saints in a must win game for Carolina.
    Saints won the toss and elected to Kick. The Panthers on their opening drive went down the field using almost half the first Quarter and converted on 3rd down and goal with a Tony Fiammetta 1 yard TD run. Special teams again bites the Panthers in the ARSE. A.Brown would take the ensuing kickoff 99 yards and tie up the game at 7 apiece. Panthers next drive stalls and they are forced to Punt. Again A.Brown takes the punt and 89 yards Saints now up 14 - 7 and haven't even ran a offensive play.

    The 2nd Quarter Panthers would start to take the game back over. After a 61 yard pass play from Matt Moore to Steve Smith, the Panthers found the endzone to the tune of a screen pass to Jonathan Stewart for a 19 yard TD. Saints and Panthers would then trade punts but the Panthers would take the lead before right before half time with a 2 yard pass from Matt Moore to Steve Smith. 21 to 14 at the Half.

    The 3rd Quarter both Defenses played well. The Panther eventually extended their lead late in the 3rd with a Jonathan Stewart 5 yard TD run. Again the Panthers force the Saints to punt and a minute into the 4th Quarter the Panthers add a 44 yard John Kasay FG to put them up 31 to 14. The game seemingly over for the Saints.

    But the Saints offense wakes up in the 4th. C.Painter hooks up with D.Henderson for a 32 yard TD and then with just under 2 minutes left in the game R.Bush gets in from 4 yards out to pull the Saints within just 3 points. Panthers needed a couple first downs and thats what they got. First play DeAngelo took a screen pass 42 yards, then on 3rd down the Panthers gave the ball to Jonathan Stewart and he battled his way for the first and setup his team to kneel the ball for the Win.

    The Panthers get their first win against the Saint since the first time they met back in Year 1. With the win the Panthers improve to 6-2 and now our in first in the NFC South. Next week the Panthers travel to Tampa to face the Buccaneers who they eeked out a win against in Week 2 23 to 20. Panthers will need to be well prepared if they want to leave Tampa with another win.

    Stats from the Game:

    Matt Moore - 16/21 2Tds 296yards
    DeAngelo Williams - 24atts for 100 yards and 5 recs for 104 yards
    Steve Smith - 5 recs for 97 yards 1 Td
    Chris Gamble - 1 int.
