Defense allowed 99 net passing yards and two field goals against Carolina

Bottom line is this: The New Orleans Saints ended a three-game losing streak Sunday with a 28-6 victory over Carolina at the Caesars Superdome, and climbed back into a first-place tie with Tampa Bay and Atlanta in the NFC South Division.

And despite the fact that New Orleans (6-7) lost its first matchup against each of those division rivals, there remains another head-to-head game with each which gives the Saints a large say in what their future holds.

It wasn't the complete-game, eye-pleasing, get-right performance that New Orleans was looking for, but it was the victory the Saints had to have.

OFFENSE: Twenty-eight points (21 on offense) and three of four on trips to the red zone certainly sounds like an efficient offensive performance, but that was nowhere near the case on a day in which the Saints totaled 207 yards, including 119 yards and two touchdowns on 18 completions by quarterback Derek Carr . The Saints were neither explosive (one play for more than 20 yards) nor forceful (97 yards on 25 carries). And on seven of 10 third-down chances New Orleans failed to convert, which contributed to a time of possession of just 25:10. Give credit for this: Tight end Jimmy Graham being active on gameday the last two Sundays has proven beneficial, with him catching three passes for two touchdowns the last two weeks, both of them in the red zone. But there was no fluidity on offense and the absence of receivers Rashid Shaheed and Michael Thomas glared against the Panthers.

The New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 28-6 on Sunday. After their win, New Orleans became tied with the Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers for first place in the NFC South.

The Saints' pass rush started the season strong but has struggled to consistently get to the quarterback since. The defense’s four sacks on Sunday was only the third time since week 3 that they recorded 3+ sacks in a game.

Dennis Allen hasn't called many blitz plays this season, usually relying on his players to win in four-man rush situations. That is not entirely a bad thing if your players are...

Fleur-de-Links, December 11: Saints get back to winning over Carolina

The New Orleans Saints got back to winning football games on Sunday, taking down the Carolina Panthers 28-6 in the Caesars Superdome.

Derek Carr was seen yelling at Erik McCoy during today’s game, which isn’t the first incident we’ve seen between teammates this year. What does that mean for the Saints coach?

Derek Carr threw a pair of touchdowns to compliment a blocked-punt TD to take down a division rival at home.

With their win and Tampa Bay winning, the Black and Gold are in a three-way tie for first in the NFC South. Unfortunately, the Saints hold no tiebreakers over their rivals.

The New Orleans Saints came into this game at 5-7 trying to find an answer after going 0-3 the last three weeks. The Panthers, who were at 1-11 gave the Saints every reason to get back on track, which is... sort of what they did?

The Saints found a way Sunday in the Superdome defeating the Carolina Panthers 28-6 in what was a very dull game to watch at times. Both teams struggled to find offense specifically in the passing game. QB’s Derek Carr and Bryce Young accumulated just 256 yards through the air combined. One of, if not the lowest marks we’ve seen this year. However, both teams...

Panthers QB Bryce Young's rough rookie season got worse against the Saints

NEW ORLEANS — Struggling Carolina quarterback Bryce Young slumped his shoulders after overthrowing open receiver Jonathan Mingo for what could have been a 45-yard touchdown just before halftime Sunday.

It was one of many squandered opportunities in an ugly 28-6 loss to the Saints, who played poorly enough to draw boos from the home crowd several times.

Even by the standards of what already had been a brutal rookie season for the NFL's top overall draft choice out of Alabama, Young slipped to a new low on Sunday.

After completing fewer than half of his passes for the first time last week...

A lot happened in the New Orleans Saints’ win over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday — both good and bad. But nothing caught fans’ attention more than the late-game altercation between quarterback Derek Carr and center Erik McCoy.

Carr picked himself up off the ground in a fury after being sacked by Panthers linebacker Frankie Luvu, who beat right guard Cesar Ruiz to bowl Carr over as he dropped back to pass. Carr took aim at McCoy after the play, who responded in kind, and the pair had to be separated. Left guard James Hurst walled off McCoy as they returned to the sideline where backup...

The New Orleans Saints recognized Mickey Loomis for his 200th career win as their general manager on Sunday after taking down the Carolina Panthers, and it’s quite an achievement. Loomis is the longest-tenured general manager in the league (not counting owner-GM’s like Jerry Jones and head coach-GM’s such as Bill Belichick), and he’s joined rare company after seeing the team’s he’s built win 200 games.

Look at the names on the list of executives to see 200 wins: Tex Schramm, Bill Polian, Kevin Colbert, and Ozzie Newsome, plus Jones, Belichick, and Al Davis. That’s the kind of company...

It was another tough game to watch for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, as they squeaked out a win against the Carolina Panthers. The day was defined by two quarterbacks, Derek Carr and Bryce Young, unable to find much that worked on the offensive side of the ball. Still, the Saints walked away with a victory and are tied for first place in the NFC South.

How did we get here? Let’s break it down by asking and answering three questions:
