Panthers take advantage of Saints mistakes to take lead

The Panthers have come back to take the lead on the Saints, and it could have been bigger.

After the Saints put together a clinical first drive, some uncharacteristic offensive mistakes allowed the Panthers back in, and they lead 14-13 in the second.

First was a Drew Brees interception which was returned for a touchdown by Panthers safety Charles Godfrey, but he also had touchdown passes dropped by Lance Moore and Jimmy Graham, settling for a field goal when a touchdown seemed apparent.

Of course, the Panthers also gave points away when Cam Newton’s fourth-down attempt came up short, after he was bottled up and tried an awkward pitch.

But the Panthers’ offense finally began to look like itself, with a 74-yard touchdown drive capped by a screen pass to Jonathan Stewart.

This one has the looks of a game that will be played in the 30s in both direction.
