Saints beat Panthers, confident about rematch with Vikings

Saints beat Panthers, confident about rematch with Vikings

Carolina Panthers suffered a 31-26 wildcard play-off loss to New Orleans Saints on Sunday and everyone is talking about what happened to Cam Newton.

The Panthers QB struggled to get to his feet before collapsing as he made his way towards the sidelines to get checked out by team doctors.

The NFL is investigating whether the Panthers violated concussion protocol by not bringing Newton back to the locker room to be evaluated.

The Panthers finally reached the end zone on a 14-yard pass from Newton to Greg Olsen, cutting the Saints lead to 24-19 with 12:47 left in the game.

Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he is very confident that the protocol was followed correctly.

The NFL is launching an investigation into whether or not the Carolina Panthers followed proper concussion protocol with quarterback Cam Newton, the NFL announced on Monday.

Newton also said after the 31-26 loss he was dealing with an eye injury and not a concussion. My helmet came down low enough over my eyelid and got pressed by the player's stomach, I believe. After the Saints beat Carolina in Sunday's wild-card playoff game - completing a 3-0 season sweep of the Panthers - Jordan referenced the "sauce" and promised he'd deliver some of his own.

Brees' touchdowns went for 80-yards to Ted Ginn and 9 yards to tight end Josh Hill.

The Department of Justice has indicated it will appeal the judge's decision, a move that could again put the program on hold. Still, he said, "it's a good sign and maybe recipients can file and renew immediately before any appeal or new law".

Panther nation will bemoan and wonder what would have been if not for an intentional grounding call on Newton that took cost Carolina precious yards and seconds in the final minute, but not Newton.

For most of the regular season, New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees has carefully placed his future Hall of Fame right arm in a protective sleeve, using it only when necessary.

Now, he said he's just preparing for that next game.

"Clearly he's trying to be more of a pocket passer and I'm OK with it", Jordan said at the time.

On Carolina's next-to-last play, Devin Funchess had a chance to complete an wonderful comeback with a 34-yard touchdown catch. [Former Saints assistant coach] Joe Vitt probably had one of the best sayings way back when he said, 'You win a Super Bowl, you walk together forever.' And we accomplished that, and you feel like there's a brotherhood that will always be there.

Kamara led the conversation for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Marshon Lattimore for Defensive Rookie of the Year, and Cam Jordan dropped a season that should draw plenty of consideration for Defensive Player of the Year. "I said, 'Let's go for it.' So, end of discussion". 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.

As for his wobbling off the field, ESPN's Jeff Saturday said that Newton was told to go to the ground to give Anderson time to get on the field and preserve time on the clock. "So I don't think it was a challenge [to Brees] as much as just how they wanted to defend us".

Newton threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to Christian McCaffrey after returning from his injury.
