Possible violation of National Football League concussion protocol to be probed

12 January 2018

Instead, he reveled in having a team around him that's good enough to help him get back to another Super Bowl. Beaten soundly by the Saints twice before this season, they pushed New Orleans to the brink in the third matchup.

The Saints went for a fourth-and-2 at the Carolina 47-yard line with two minutes left, but Brees was intercepted by Mike Adams at the Panthers 31.

- Vonn Bell, Saints, had nine total tackles and the victory-sealing sack of Cam Newton in New Orleans' victory. This led Newton to say he would send Jordan "some sauce" if he gave him his address. "I don't think they want to challenge us as much as they just wanted to defend us". I'm not going to take the cowardly way and point somebody else out'. Jordan, a newly named All-Pro, also tipped two passes and might have made his biggest play when he ran through two blockers to force Newton's intentional grounding.

Newton returned on the next series and threw a 56-yard touchdown pass to rookie running back Christian McCaffrey on the third play of the possession.

"He was a lot like me", said Johnson, who came out of Southern Cal with more fanfare as the No. 1 overall pick by the New York Jets in the 1996 NFL Draft.

"I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code", Newton said Wednesday when I asked him about Jordan's criticism. Case Keenum won the starting QB job, throwing for 3,547 yards on 325 of 481 passing, good for a 67.6% completion percentage with 22 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

Brees completed 23-of-33 passes (69.6 percent), and he now has 3,915 career passing yards in the postseason, ranking him 10th in National Football League history. "If you are going to stack the "box" (the area near the line of scrimmage) and take us (running backs) out of the game, then he is going to hurt you. So they'll get a chance to look at him". The Panthers essentially had dared Brees, the quarterback who owns five of the nine 5,000-yard passing seasons in National Football League history, to beat them, employing a defensive game plan in which the top priority was to slow Pro Bowlers Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara.

The Daily News reported that Newton was taken to the Panthers' medical tent and not the locker room. They settled for four field goal attempts on those drives, one of which kicker Graham Gano surprisingly missed from 25-yards.

If anyone deserves to troll a little bit it's Jordan.

"We had a young defense that was still learning", Jordan said.

Olsen had eight catches for 107 yards and a touchdown.

Who had Ted Ginn Jr, Josh Hill, and Brandon Coleman catching 11 passes for 208 yards and two scores?

The dynamic duo, Alvin Kamara, and Mark Ingram have made their presence known all season long, but Sunday night, Carolina's plan to stop the run succeeded. The only remaining players from the teams are Vikings defensive end Brian Robison, and Saints quarterback Drew Brees and punter Thomas Morstead. He had the typical Cam Newton face on after a sack. As he tried to walk off the field he stopped and sat on the ground near the Panthers' sideline where team doctors attended to him.

The NFL said it planned to discuss the matter with the Panthers medical staff before commenting further.
