Saints defeat Panthers for the third time this season

How did the Panthers statistically finish out the regular NFL season?
Brees' lone blemish came on that conversion, where he threw the ball up for grabs and Carolina safety Mike Adams came away with the interception.
"There's familiarity", said SaintsquarterbackDrew Brees, who completed 25 of 34 passes for 269 yards and a touchdown in the 31-21 win and was 22 of 29 for 220 yards and three touchdowns in the 34-13 win.
"I think the excitement just builds between everyone", fan Joe Huson said.
New Orleans' defense, in particular, has played much better since the Minnesota loss, when the Saints gave up 470 yards and allowed the Vikings to convert nine of 14 third downs.
"They blocked it pretty well throughout the day, but I made the play on the last one - the one that counts", Bell said. After the Panthers missed a field goal, Drew Brees fired an 80 yard touchdown strike to former PantherTed Ginn Jr. and he connected with tight end Josh Hill on a 9-yard touchdown that gave New Orleans a 14-3 advantage. But although Cam Newton led the Panthers to the shadow of the end zone and what would have been a last-second, go-ahead touchdown, he effectively ended the game flat on his back, the victim of a voracious Saints defense.
And as the player who held a broom in his hand during postgame interviews to signify a Saints' three-game "sweep" of the Panthers. "The ball was spread around quite a bit and guys were making plays when they had the chances".
It was the fifth time the Panthers failed to reach the end zone after getting past the Saints' 25-yard line.
"We've been preparing for this moment", Bell said.
Now, Te'o said, "We kind of know who we are and what we can do and what our strengths are. and also what things we need to work on". Team doctors and trainers checked on Newton and took him to the medical tent before clearing him to return. Other players have developed into more significant roles as the Saints ascended to the top of the NFC South and past the wild-card round of the playoffs.
But Newton returned with a vengeance, needing just three plays to whirl the Panthers 75 yards and back nipping at the Saints' heels.
The Panthers (11-5) are hoping quarterbackCam Newton will rebound from his terrible performance - he completed 14-of-34 passes for 180 yards with one touchdown and three interceptions - during the 22-10 loss to Atlanta in Week 17. The pass was incomplete, but the Saints' Ken Crawley was called for pass interference.
"I believe that we are different".
Olsen had eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown. And it was Newton's refusal to back down not only to Brees' greatness but his own team's self-inflicted wounds that made this a riveting wild-card weekend closer.
After evading pressure by Tyeler Davison, Newton was blasted by Onyemata, who had a free run at the quarterback as Newton was attempting to regain his balance.
Pantherscoach Ron Rivera thought Newton had been poked in the eye.
Staff members said that when the Panthers make it to the playoffs, business is booming.
The Saints lost starting left guard Andreas Peat with a leg injury in the second quarter and his teammates rallied in his absence. Needless to say, at that juncture of the game with Carolina trailing by five points, the call was crushing for the Panthers.

Chelsea was still pursuing the victor in the third minute of stoppage time when defender Davide Zappacosta struck the crossbar. In the end, a point each was probably a fair result in what must go down as one of the most entertaining games of the season.
