30-17 Carolina: Saints close the margin

New Orleans just scored its second TD of the afternoon, slicing Carolina's margin to 13 points with 14:48 left in the fourth quarter.

This was a Drew Brees drive all the way. Carolina blitzed him and tried to rattle him, but it just didn't work this time. Brees was on target for the entire march, which ended on an easy throw to Robert Meachem for the 7-yard TD on a wide receiver screen.

With it now a 2-possession game, the Panthers will try to work the clock and score again. Carolina has scored on 5 of 7 drives so far -- the only exceptions being when the clock ran out in the first half and when John Kasay just missed a 41-yard FG.

Brees has 240 yards passing so far -- he needs 402 to beat Dan Marino's all-time record for a season of 5,084 yards, set back in 1984.

Who is the Panthers DB coach? He must be let go at the end of the season. This defensive backfield is horrible!!!!!!

When is Fox going to learn how to go for the kill when this team gets ahead? Everytime they get a lead they get complacent. This is sickening.
