The NFL is investigating handling of Cam Newton hit

Cam Newton is 12/20 for 143 yards, but the team has just 47 yards rushing on 18 carries.

"We trust our system", Brees said Sunday night at the Superdome. Then, as he was walking toward the sideline, appeared to stumble to one knee. As he tried to walk off the field he stopped and sat on the ground near the Panthers' sideline where team doctors attended to him. It was my eye. "My helmet had come down low enough over my eyelid, and it got pressed on a player's stomach, I believe".

'I thought somebody stuck their finger in my eye, but I've got my visor, so that couldn't happen'. Newton left for one offensive play in the fourth quarter to be evaluated for a concussion, but was cleared.

Immediately after the game, which ended the Panthers' season, Newton and coach Ron Rivera maintained that Newton had been poked in the eye. "I mean, he's gone with the grandma hat and the onesie". Guys live in different parts of the country, they have their families, they have all this stuff going on, you may not talk to them for a while, and yet when you get back together it's as if no time has passed.

"I can tell you this: That game didn't come down to that play", Newton said.

It was the Saints' first playoff victory since 2013 and their first home playoff win since 2011. New Orleans scored a touchdown on their next possession to stretch the lead to 31-19, and Newton was back on the field when the Panthers' offense regained the ball. If the Saints are going to accomplish their ultimate goal of winning a Super Bowl this season, that much-improved supporting cast might not be enough.

Later in the year, Newton said, "I didn't know he was a fan of my dress code". They easily covered as 5.5-point first-half faves and I was in the Westgate Theater when it went nuts as Alex Smith hit Demarcus Robinson with a 14-yard TD pass with 3 seconds left before intermission to put it over the first-half over/under of 22 points (a field goal would have left it under).

The Saints' all time road playoff record is 1-6. "We could have played better as a team". That comes with a lot of responsibility.

Newton had 349 passing yards and two touchdowns in the loss to the Saints, although Jordan was big as well with a sack, two passes defended and two quarterback hits.

In 2012, the league ruled there was a system in place in which Saints players were illegally paid bonuses for injuring opposing players.

Brees completed 23-of-33 passes (69.6 percent), and he now has 3,915 career passing yards in the postseason, ranking him 10th in National Football League history. A defensive-holding penalty moved Carolina to the New Orleans 21-yard line with 46 seconds to play.

With the Panthers in position for their first lead, Newton was called for intentional grounding, which cost 13 yards, a loss of down and a 10-second runoff. That's tough. That's a tough one to handle. "Not that he wears high heels - I don't think so yet, right?"

Brees completed 23 passes to eight different receivers for 375 yards and two touchdowns.
