Drew Brees comes to pass when New Orleans Saints need him

NFL in contact with Carolina Panthers about handling of Cam Newton after hit

NFL in contact with Carolina Panthers about handling of Cam Newton after hit

Ultimately, Jordan does have a lot of respect for Newton, who is one of the hardest quarterbacks in the National Football League to corral, although the Saints star sacked him once on Sunday, batted down two passes, forced a pivotal intentional grounding penalty and helped Vonn Bell clean up Newton on the game's final play.

That was as close as they got, prolonging a painful trend in an excruciating 31-26 loss Sunday night in the NFC wild-card round. He was also key in helping force an intentional grounding on the final drive.

On Sunday, the Carolina Panthers were in the midst of trying to complete a comeback victory over a team that had beaten them twice already during the season, but a monkey wrench was thrown into their plans when Cam Newton took a vicious shot from a Saints defender late in the 4th quarter.

The NFL's new concussion protocol might only be two weeks old, but if more situations like Newton's continue, it'll be tough to watch any NFL.

Rivera said when he walked on the field to check on Newton, the quarterback told him he'd been poked in the eye. How can we apply pressure and how can we get them off their balance?' "That's what we didn't do". Even if Carolina is not guilty of putting Cam Newton back in the game before he was properly examined, the National Football League has created an atmosphere where fans have no reason to trust that teams are being honest and thorough in their treatment of players.

- Blake Bortles, Jaguars, ran for 88 yards and passed for 87 yards and a touchdown in Jacksonville's 10-3 win over Buffalo, becoming the second starting quarterback in the past 25 seasons to win a playoff game with more yards rushing than yards passing.

Stressing that "terror knows to borders", he added that Ankara and Istanbul were as safe as Washington and NY . Ankara explains their move by the "inaccurate information" received from the US State Department.

"A little fazed? He definitely wasn't unfazed", Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan said - it didn't matter.

Just days after Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera announced there would be no changes to his staff minus someone finding a job elsewhere, he acted.

"I've just got to be better", he said.

Carolina has serious issues at the receiver position which could spell trouble if this one develops into a shootout with not much more than stud tight end Greg Olson and still developing Devin Funchess. "We nearly let them back in the game, but here I am standing as victor".

"That game didn't come down to just one call that could have went either way". I do believe I am the leader of this team and the team goes as I go.

"I just have to be better", he added. "So, I'm going to send him some sauce".

Kickoff to Patriots vs. Titans playoff game just hours away
The NFL playoffs usually mean the New England Patriots , who are in the postseason for a record-tying ninth consecutive year. Here are five takeaways from the New England Patriots' 35-14 win over the Tennessee Titans at Gillette Stadium on Saturday.

Kamara led the conversation for NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year, Marshon Lattimore for Defensive Rookie of the Year, and Cam Jordan dropped a season that should draw plenty of consideration for Defensive Player of the Year. On the other hand, this is what the Panthers created, and it's what they gave Newton, the cornerstone of the franchise, so in a sense it's exactly how it should have ended.

All this week we'll be sharing coverage of the New Orleans Saints from the Baton Rouge Advocate.

"There are a couple of plays I personally would like to take back", Panthers safety Kurt Coleman said.

After Gano booted a 39-yard field goal to nudge the Panthers nearer, Brees guided the Saints on an eight-play, 75-yard trek capped by Zach Line's 1-yard touchdown run to put New Orleans ahead 21-6.

Newton said after the game Sunday that "precautionary concussion protocol things" happened, but "it wasn't my head". Backup quarterback Derek Anderson took over under center while Newton was examined in the medical tent on the Panthers' sideline.

But after one series without him, he would return to the fray.

Russian Club Spartak Moscow Spark Racism Row With Offensive Video
Russia, billed to host the FIFA World Cup in June has a long history of racial prejudices and intolerance. Spartak later posted a video in which Fernando says: "At Spartak there is no racism".

Newton said after the game that it wasn't his head that had gotten injured.
