Panthers vs. Saints: Full Highlights and Recap

Jesse ReedCorrespondent IDecember 14, 2015

The Carolina Panthers took to the road in Week 17 and defeated the New Orleans Saints, winning by a score of 44-38. 

Cam Newton completed less than half his passes and didn't throw a single touchdown, but the Panthers got it done in other ways—specifically on the ground.

Mike Tolbert rushed for just 25 yards, but he scored three touchdowns—all from one yard out. 

DeAngelo Williams broke out with a huge game, rushing for 210 yards and two touchdowns on 21 carries—easily his best performance of the 2012 season. 

Drew Brees tossed four touchdown passes and threw for nearly 400 yards, but be couldn't help his defense, and it wasn't enough to stop the Panthers from running away with the game

Lance Moore and Jimmy Graham both went over 100 yards, and Graham caught one of Brees' touchdown passes. Marques Colston hauled in two touchdowns, finishing the game with five catches for 52 yards. 

Both teams have long been eliminated from playoff contention, but it's worth noting that the Panthers have won their last four games and five of their last six. It's certainly something to build on for next season, and it'll be interesting to see what changes—if any—Carolina makes this upcoming offseason.
