Saints vs. Panthers: Final Report Cards, Player Grades for New Orleans

New Orleans 27 Carolina 35

Final

The New Orleans Saints had another disappointing eight-point loss, this time at the hands of Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers. Newton finished with 253 yards passing on 14-of-20 passing while adding a passing touchdown and one on the ground as well. 

For the Saints, Drew Brees threw for 325 yards but two interceptions doomed the Saints. The good news for New Orleans is that the team ran the football extremely well. Pierre Thomas rumbled through the Panthers' defense for 110 yards, while Mark Ingram managed 53 yards of his own. 

But the Saints defense was awful for much of the day. Overall the Saints gave up 219 yards rushing on the day. The concerns of fans in New Orleans and nationally now seems justified as the team is 0-2 and in need of some serious soul searching.
