NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -The New Orleans Saints NFC South blues continued on Sunday with a loss to the Panthers, 22-14.
The Panthers victory ended their nine-game losing streak, and started a Saints (1-2) two-game losing run.

Carolina raced out to a 13-0 lead at half. The big play in the first two quarters, Alvin Kamara lost a fumble, and the Panthers Marquis Haynes, Sr. returned for a 44-yard score.
The Saints special teams failed them most of the contest. Will Lutz had a field goal blocked, and he missed a 48-yard field goal.
The Black and Gold play in London next Sunday against the Vikings.
