The Panthers may be coaching and playing for their jobs.

It didn’t take the Saints long to make the seats even hotter.

Drew Brees just led his team to a quick touchdown drive and a 7-0 lead, marching 75 yards in seven plays.

After turning a clean pocket into a 30-yard strike to Ted Ginn Jr., Latavius Murray took the next snap 26 yards for the touchdown.

It was an efficient start for a team playing for playoff position, rather than survival. It was also their first touchdown on their first drive this season, which isn’t anything the Panthers want to hear.
