Brandon LaFell is emerging as a star in the Panthers' offense. Carolina wide receiver, Brandon LaFell, hauled in six catches for 90 yards (with a long of 27) and found openings in the Saints' zone defense the entire game.Every time the Panthers needed a first down, Newton looked to LaFell and he answered with catches for some big gains.

Saints Week 2: This Time, It’s Ridiculous

While watching the Saints’ defense get dismantled by Cam Newton and the Panthers, I realized I hadn’t had that much fun since that time I was at a construction site and a rusty nail went through my foot.
