The fourth quarter was dominated by the Saints. Drew Brees, who had 285 yards, had two touchdowns. His first touchdown pass was to Brandon Coleman for nine-yards.

Coby Fleener caught an eight-yard touchdown. Wil Lutz also had a 30-yard field goal to begin the quarter.

Before Fleener’s touchdown, Panthers star linebacker Luke Kuechly left the game. It initially looked like a leg injury.

However, NBC Sports sideline reporter Heather Cox said it was a concussion. He did not return.

Graham Geno had a 42-yard field goal in the third quarter. He also made a 49-yard field goal and a 32-yard field goal in the first half.

Newton has a 40-yard touchdown to Ted Ginn Jr. Jonathan Stewart also has a one-yard rushing touchdown.

Lutz also made a field goal with 39 seconds remaining in the first quarter to tie the game at 3.
