The Saints kept their starters in for most of the game yesterday as the Panthers never had much of a chance. Cam Newton completed 15 of 25 passes (60%) for 158 yards with 1 TD pass and 1 INT. He also carried the ball 6 times for 32 yards (5.3 ypc) in this game. Jonathan Stewart led the way on the ground for the Panthers in this game with 79 yards rushing on 9 carries (8.8 ypc) with 1 TD run. He also caught 2 passes for 7 yards in this game. DeAngelo Williams also had a solid game with 53 yards rushing on 7 carries (7.6 ypc) and he also caught 2 passes for 20 yards.

NEW ORLEANS There should be a controversy brewing around Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

The Eagles dissapointing 2011 season came to end today, as fans now will have to wait 8 months until the players put on pads again up at Lehigh University.
Which players will be putting on those pads is still very much up in the air. Major changes will be made, and should be after a 8-8 finish.
But one thing is known about next season- who the Eagles will be playing, and where....
Shaking off an earlier interception, Drew Brees hit Marques Colston on a 42-yard touchdown pass with seven seconds left in the first half to give the Saints a 24-17 halftime lead Sunday at the Superdome.
Jonathan Stewart's 29-yard touchdown run had pulled the Panthers even at 17 with 1:18 remaining in the half.
That was too much time for Brees, who completed all five...

The 2011 NFL regular season has come to a close so today we are going to give respect to players that we consider overachievers. If you’re a fantasy football team owner, I’m sure you were pleasantly surprised by these guys.
This, of course, comes a week after we highlighted the biggest...
Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera developed some young talent in 2011, starting with Cam Newton, but ultimately saw his team fail to close the door in too many tough losses, Elliot Harrison writes.
