Latest NFL News: Saints top Panthers 28-10 to take NFC South lead (Yahoo Sports)
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.
