Brees and the Saints Win Big in Carolina 31-6

 Bush runs vs the Panthers

It took them till the third quarter to do it, but the Saints finally found their offense again, and once they did, the Carolina Panthers could do nothing to stop them.  Drew Brees threw for 260 yards and three touchdowns, and the Saints scored on their first three second half possessions as they pounded the Panthers 31-6 in Carolina.  The Saints broke their two game losing streak and kept their playoff hopes alive, moving to 5-6.

“I know everyone wants to pin it on the quarterback,” Panthers coach John Fox said. “I think it’s fairly evident it’s not just the quarterback. Right now we’re just not a very good football team … and the buck stops here.” The Panthers are now 4-7.

It was a must win for the Saints, and with it they got back on track after a first half when they to punt six times and turned the ball over once.  Brees knew they had to pick it up in the second half.  “We talked at halftime and we knew that we had to do whatever it takes. You saw that coming out, three consecutive touchdowns.”

The Saints will look to get some revenge next week as they take on the first place Bucs at the SuperDome.
