So much for us worrying about how the New Orleans Saints would perform on Sunday Night Football against the Carolina Panthers.

Drew Brees and the Saints took it to the elite Carolina defense and espcaped with a major NFC South victory, 31-13. In fact, the victory was so convincing that ESPN’s David Newton went on to classify the Panthers as “average” and added this detail:

The Saints scored three touchdowns in the second quarter against a unit that had given up only three touchdowns in the previous four games. QuarterbackDrew Brees threw four touchdowns against a unit that hadn’t allowed more than two touchdowns in any game all season.

New Orleans’ 247 yards a halftime were about 42 yards shy of what the Panthers were giving up per game.

Fans surely held some form of collective hope that the Saints would take out their anger over a major loss to Seattle on the Panthers. The Saints did just that, but the celebration will be short-lived. The Saints take on the Panthers yet again, this time on the road, in two weeks.
