Panthers unable to convert pivotal plays in playoff loss

13 January 2018

There are some games where we are asking him to block a D-gap or be really effective in the pass game, there might not.

"It's night and day", Brees said.

Jacksonville's Blake Bortles became the second starting quarterback in the past 25 seasons to win a playoff game with more rushing yards than passing yards (88 rushing, 87 passing).

Cleared to return for the next series, Newton completed his next five passes after the injury. And this year, he proved to be more than just a deep threat as he caught 53 passes (three short of his career high) for 787 yards (also three short of his career high) and four touchdowns. Only two of his completions went to Ingram or Kamara, who accounted for only 68 yards from scrimmage combined. "We trust each other".

Maybe it's better that way because the Saints are a much better team than the one that started the season 0-2.

That didn't work. Brees was, well, Brees-like, slicing and dicing the Panthers for 376 yards and two touchdowns, with two receivers, Michael Thomas and Ted Ginn Jr., each topping 100 yards receiving. But New Orleans played so well against the Panthers, you would have thought their respective seasons had been almost opposite.

He also averaged a goal every two games having notched seven of them thus highlighting his ability in front of goal. At the beginning of the Carabao Cup they played Wolverhampton and they went to the penalty kicks against them.

There simply can not have been many times during Brees's tenure in New Orleans that he has seen an opposing defense use such a stop-the-run strategy, particularly in a game of such significance.

"That was the difference in the game", said Olsen, who had eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown.

"I think when you play defensively, you look at the games past and you look at: 'Hey, what can we take away that hurt us in the first two games? I didn't get the explanation". Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered a similar explanation.

Jordan initially seemed a bit confused what Newton meant by "sauce" but he clearly didn't forget the quarterback's comments.

C Offensive line: Newton had a clean pocket in the first half, when he wasn't sacked and was only pressured once.

NFL Players Association and NFL on Monday jointly launched a formal investigation of the injury suffered by Cam Newton and its handling by Carolina Panthers.

The people have little food, great inflation, and no human rights. "We must not make that mistake again", she said. Mehr had said an assailant using a hunting rifle killed a policeman and wounded three other people in Najafabad.

The Saints star was unsurprisingly in a good mood following Sunday's game. We've clearly turned to the next chapter. We went toe to toe with Philadelphia.

B Running backs: Christian McCaffrey's 56-yard TD catch in the fourth quarter was the rookie's longest play this season.

The Saints finished 1 for 5 in the red zone in Week 1, their only touchdown coming late in the fourth quarter when the Vikings held a comfortable 29-12 lead.

Later in the year, Newton said, "I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code". They won a division title and their home playoff game, anything more from here is lagniappe.

JACKSONVILLE, FL - JANUARY 07: Blake Bortles #5 of the Jacksonville Jaguars runs with the football in the second half of the AFC Wild Card Round game against the Buffalo Bills at EverBank Field on January 7, 2018 in Jacksonville, Florida.
