Panthers Pounded By New Orleans; 45-17

Drew Brees passed for 389 yards and five touchdowns, and the Saints set a slew of NFL and club records in a 45-17 blowout of the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.

The Panthers (6-10), which had won four of five, kept up for much of the first half but wilted over the final two quarters while the Saints set a franchise single-game record with 617 yards of total offense.

“We caught a football team that is on a roll right now,” Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. “That’s a playoff-caliber football team that did that to us.”

Cam Newton closed out an otherwise spectacular rookie season 15 of 25 for 158 yards, one touchdown and one interception.

“It was embarrassing how we ended that game,” Newton said. “Offense, defense, special teams, the whole 9 yards, it was real tough.”
