New Orleans 41 – Carolina 24

Drew Brees started this game completing 3 of 6 passes for 14 yards.  Then, he got serious, connecting on 30 of his final 33 passes for 295 yards and 3 TD’s!!!!  He doesn’t complete as many long passes as he did when he was younger . . . . but, when he’s on, he just doesn’t miss many open receivers, and boy, was he on today!

Down at the half, despite being heavily favored, the Saints controlled the ball for the majority of the final two periods and rallied for a 17-point victory, bouncing the Panthers from the playoffs.

Brees’ favorite target was Michael Thomas, who hauled in 13 catches for 125 yards and all three of New Orleans’ TD passes.  And, Alvin Kamara added 84 yards on just 11 carries, including a 36 yard scoring scamper for the Saints.

CAR - NO
