Saints hold off Panthers to secure wild playoff win, 31-26

The New Orleans Saints Now Play in the No Fun League

Penalties included coach Sean Payton and then-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams suspended for the entire 2012 season.

But Newton, who was sacked four times and hit six more, kept coming, even after a David Onyemata sack seemingly knocked him from the game. Both players caught highlight-reel touchdowns in the fourth quarter to give the Panthers a chance to win at the end. It wasn't until early in the fourth quarter, on their fifth red zone visit, that Newton found Greg Olsen - the biggest thorn in the Saints' side defensively - for a touchdown and one-score deficit for the first time since late in the first half. He was replaced by backup Derek Anderson, and, as he moved toward the sideline, Newton went to the ground and appeared to be pointing toward his right eye.

Newton returned and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to running back Christian McCaffrey to get the Panthers within 31-26 with 4:09 to go.

Newton wound up completing 24 of 40 passes for 349 yards.

It was testament to a defence that was aided all day by the Who Dats.

BJP, RSS are 'Hindu extremists': Siddaramaiah
BJP has made a decision to hold a "Jail Bharo" protest in the state in protest of Siddaramaiah's statements. He also hit back at BJP president Amit Shah for his remarks that the Karnataka government was "anti-Hindu".

The rest of the game he had the noise meter pushed up every time he stood under centre. "We'll experience it now, going to Minnesota". "You begin to take shape as the season progresses as to who you become".

James Bradberry (Pleasant Grove, Samford) started at left cornerback for the Panthers and made a team-leading eight tackles, including one behind the line of scrimmage. Certainly your cadence is not used and that's an advantage offensively if you can use your cadence.

"You can't be more happy about the way we played in terms of how we finished the game", Jordan said.

"He got a good clean read, and he was the No. 2 (option for Brees)", said Rivera.

"I'm frustrated", Newton said.

Taylor Swift adds second Philly show for July
Swift's first single off the Reputation album , " Look What You Made Me Do " broke multiple records within hours of its release. An example of a large section of MetLife Stadium where tickets are still available for Taylor Swift's July 20 concert .

Meanwhile, receiver Ted Ginn, known primarily as a deep threat before the Saints acquired him in the offseason, demonstrated enough chemistry with quarterback Drew Brees as the season progressed to convert key first downs on intermediate routes as well. However, it was evident early on that the future Hall of Fame quarterback would be the main mode of attack vs. a Panthers secondary that slowly regressed in the second half of 2017. Brees's long throw off a roll-out to wide receiver Michael Thomas set up what proved to be the decisive touchdown. "We felt like we had a great game plan going". "It had like 10 stars beside it on the call sheet".

At 32 years old, Ginn has caught a league-high 76 percent of his targets - more of the universe's twisted humor, as Ginn is remembered more by Panthers fans (at least those on social media) for the balls he dropped in a blue-and-white jersey than those he caught.

First was fullback Zach Line.

Brees tried to chew up the last of the clock, and he succeeded in devouring Carolina's timeouts, but the Saints drive stalled at midfield.

Not only that, but Gano would bury a 58-yard field goal just before halftime to cut the score to 21-9.

Down 20, Iowa comes back to beat IL in overtime
Frazier led IL with a career-high 27 points, including seven 3-pointers, while Leron Black and Aaron Jordan added 18 points each. Midway through the first half, it looked like it was going to be a long night for the Iowa men's basketball team.

Meanwhile, Saints coach Sean Payton will be trying to change or disguise most everything his offense has done against the Panthers, which may be hard as those old plays accounted for 400 yards in the 31-21 win and 362 yards in the 34-13 victory.
