What's next for Panthers, Saints?
Everything seemed set for a huge New Orleans Saints win. Drew Brees & Co. held a 13-10 lead on the road over the Carolina Panthers, and just a minute remained. Then Cam Newton earned perhaps the biggest win of his career, engineering a five-play, 65-yard touchdown drive in just 32 seconds (ending on a 14-yard strike from Newton to Domenik Hixon). The 17-13 win sent Carolina to the top of the NFC South standings, and all but doomed New Orleans to a wild-card spot -- and a first-round road game, which doesn't bode well for a team that went 3-5 away from the Superdome this season.
