The Saints’ offense is potent enough with Drew Brees. Brees threw for 297 yards and a touchdown and also ran for another score, and Ingram turned in another strong performance carrying 30 times for 100 yards and two TDs and New Orleans defeated the Carolina Panthers 28-10 Thursday night to take over first place in the NFC South. Brees praised Ingram, who was coming off 172 yards rushing last week against Green Bay, for ”carrying the load” and being the catalyst for the Saints’ recent turnaround the past two weeks. ”Man, it’s when our offense is at its best,” Brees said of the Saints’ running game.

''All systems look like they're go,'' Gruden said.

Gruden said Griffin is fully recovered from a dislocated left ankle suffered in Week 2 and that the third-year quarterback took most of the first-team snaps in practice ahead of Colt McCoy, who started Monday night's upset over the Dallas Cowboys.

''We feel he's at 100 percent physically right …

Panthers defensive end Greg Hardy’s domestic violence appeal trial set for Nov. 17 has been postponed until after the NFL season, a person familiar with the situation said Thursday night. The change could signal the end of Hardy’s season – and perhaps his career – with the Panthers. The NFL and the Panthers have said Hardy would not play until after his trial was resolved, although he is still collecting more than $770,000 per week as Carolina’s franchise player. The Panthers placed Hardy on the exempt-commissioner’s permission list on Sept. 17 after he was convicted in July of assault on a female and communicating threats.
