The Saints March In Over The Carolina Panthers

In NFL action, the Carolina Panthers lost again last night, 28-to-10, to the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints' defense sacked Carolina Quarterback Cam Newton four times and forced two turnovers. Newton spent much of the night under heavy pressure playing behind an offensive line without three of its regular starters. He was limited to 151 yards passing.

After the game, Newton responded to questions about whether he was pressing, or trying to do too much.

“Well obviously I didn't do enough, being that the Panthers lost. My job is to put my team in the best situation to win a football game. And when that doesn't happen, the first person you look to is the quarterback, and I didn't get that done.”

Newton says he's looking forward to some time off to regroup. The Panthers will get a 10-day break before heading to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles.
