Panthers admit Cam Newton embellished injury to buy time

"We wanted it more". Anderson came in for one third down play and was almost intercepted. It was Brees' placement that made him impossible to stop on Sunday, when he consistently exploited tight coverage and threw receivers open all afternoon.

There simply can not have been many times during Brees's tenure in New Orleans that he has seen an opposing defense use such a stop-the-run strategy, particularly in a game of such significance.

Newton left for one play after Saints defensive tackle David Onyemata's chest struck Newton's head with about nine minutes left. "But again, I'm not the doctor", Rivera said.

"I think it's just how quickly he gets the ball out and how accurate he is; you could have a guy covered", Barr said. "If he wants to send me his address I can send him some sauce". He was also key in helping force an intentional grounding on the final drive.

The Panthers fell into a sizable hole heading to half after both teams scored three times but Carolina kicked three field goals while New Orleans scored three touchdowns.

"Our quarterback was out of the pocket", he said. "And the defense couldn't have played any better at the end".

The Saints grabbed a 21-9 halftime lead thanks to Ginn's score, a 9-yard scoring pass from Brees to tight end Josh Hill, who played perhaps the best game of his career, and a 1-yard dive by fullback Zach Line.

In a season where the big stories were about the Saints offense relying less on Drew Brees and more on a power running game featuring Alvin Kamara and Ingram, Sunday was about Drew Brees reminding everyone he's still unbelievable at 38 years old. "We knew what we had to do and it was on the receivers".

According to the National Football League, this required the player to be removed from the field for examination in a locker room.

The NFL confirmed after the game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome that it was investigating the Panthers' treatment of Newton.

"We had a young defense that was still learning", Jordan said.

Kelce led the Chiefs this season in receptions with 83, had a team-high eight touchdown catches and was second on the team in receiving yards.

Saints running backs Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara, who combined for more than 3,000 yards from scrimmage this season, were held to 68 total yards.

Jordan apparently did not forget Newton's remark. Kaelin Clay dropped a perfectly thrown pass by Newton in the end zone, forcing the Panthers to settle for a field-goal try (unsuccessful). Panthers coach Ron Rivera offered a similar explanation.

"We are in contact now with the Panthers' medical staff and we will not comment further until those conversations are completed".

The Daily News reported that Newton was taken to the Panthers' medical tent and not the locker room.
