The Saints finally are on the scoreboard.

New Orleans has 319 yards, but it took the team until the fourth quarter to get in the end zone. Mark Ingram scored on a 5-yard run with 12:31 remaining.

The 10-play, 89-yard drive had drawn the Saints to within 13-7 of the Panthers.

But Laviska Shenault Jr. caught a 67-yard pass from Baker Mayfield on the Panthers’ ensuing drive. The Panthers missed the two-point conversion but lead 19-7 with 12:06 left.

Mayfield is 10-of-21 for 143 yards and a touchdown.

The Saints had a field goal blocked at the end of the second quarter and Wil Lutz missed a 48-yard try wide right with 7:16 remaining in the third quarter.

Jameis Winston is 20-of-31 for 246 yards, with rookie Chris Olave catching seven passes for 98 yards.

  1. Dear saints coaching staff:
    Your best quarterback is riding the pine. That would be Andy Dalton. He’s an effective quarterback and he takes care of the ball much better than Winston. You’re never going win with a quarterback that throws more interceptions than touchdowns. Jameis Winston, despite being talented, just seems to not be able to take care of the ball. He has more interceptions this year than touchdowns. If you want blame it on his back, then maybe you should put them on the bench and let them recover for a while and play somebody that could actually win the game for you.
    Start Andy Dalton.
