The New Orleans Saints won another nail-biter, but a win is a win, right?
The Saints were able to hang on to beat Teddy Bridgewater and the Carolina Panthers 27-24 in the Superdome yesterday, in a game that looked like it could go either way early. The Saints offense didn’t seem to miss a beat, despite being down their top two wide receivers in Michael Thomas (hamstring) and Emmanuel Sanders (Covid). On the other hand, the Saints defense - specifically in the secondary - continued to struggle, with blown coverages and poor tackling the story of the game.
But when the final seconds ticked off the clock, the New Orleans Saints were able to improve to 4-2, a half game behind the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who have yet to go on their bye. Here are some of the best social media reactions from during and after the game:

Saints limited the Panthers to 37 rushing yards on 14 carries. Season low for Carolina, season best for New Orleans.— Luke Johnson (@ByLukeJohnson) October 25, 2020
