The Panthers are playing their third quarterback of the game -- rookie Tony Pike just took over at QB early in the fourth quarter.
The early results weren't impressive -- Pike's first series ended on a three-and-out. His one long pass was a wounded duck, falling about 10 yards short of where it needed to be (and would have been nullified by an offensive holding penalty anyway).
New Orleans still leads 27-3, the stadium is clearing out and there's still 13:32 to go.
