Panthers vs Saints Final Score: Brees tops 50,000 yards as Saints Win 31-13

While holding the Panthers to seven points or less in each half, the New Orleans Saints scored more points than anyone else has scored against Carolina all year.

While leading the New Orleans Saints (10-3) to a great victory over division opponent Carolina Panthers (9-4), Drew Brees became the first quarterback in NFL history to surpass 50,000 passing yards within 183 games.  All four touchdowns for New Orleans were delivered by the elite quarterback's arm, with two touchdown passes each to Marques Colston and Jimmy Graham.

Solidifying their control over the NFC South division, and strengthening their claim on the No.2 seed in the NFC, the Saints now face two conference games on the road... including a rematch of tonight's game, in Carolina.
