Newton is the Panthers. Penalties included coach Sean Payton and then-defensive coordinator Gregg Williams suspended for the entire 2012 season. "Here I am, as a Cam Jordan, sending Cam Newton a bottle of Jordan wine".
Panthers: Cornerback Daryl Worley briefly was placed in the concussion protocol but also cleared to return during the game.
The Panthers finally got in the end zone early in the fourth quarter, driving 68 yards on eight plays, with Newton doing the major damage with four passes for 54 yards to tight end Greg Olsen. Newton is going to be under pressure a lot and you can bet the Saints will be spying him so that he doesn't beat them on the ground.
But Newton promptly returned on the next series, nearly immediately connecting with Christian McCaffrey on a 56-yard catch-and-run touchdown. However, he was ruled to still be in the pocket and intentional grounding was called.
It was testament to a defence that was aided all day by the Who Dats.
Williams, a third-year pro who missed almost all of his first two seasons with separate injuries, has two interceptions this season and saw increasing playing time in five-defensive-back formations because of Vaccaro's injuries.
The rest of the game he had the noise meter pushed up every time he stood under centre.

The scientist says it appears that all are aftershocks from a November temblor that killed over 530 people. An natural disaster of magnitude 5.1 hit parts of southern Iran on Thursday, said reports.
"Going from a team that pretty much said (I) wasn't really a factor for them, and then to come out here and be an X-factor in the last three games", he told reporters, "It's been a great deal for me". "We will just get ready for next week". Certainly your cadence is not used and that's an advantage offensively if you can use your cadence. Olsen said later in the locker room that he heard several of the other officials trying to talk Corrente out of this call, but that Corrente stuck with it despite their protests.
"We weren't sharp, we made some bad plays and did some stupid stuff, but we found a way to win and that's all that matters", Bortles said.
"I'm frustrated", Newton said. Both of the signal-caller's touchdown throws came during the first half, including a season-long, 80-yard bomb to Ted Ginn to close the first quarter. "We knew what we had to do and it was on the receivers".
Brees was then intercepted to leave the Panthers a small chance - two minutes and zero timeouts.
C Offensive line: Newton had a clean pocket in the first half, when he wasn't sacked and was only pressured once. The Saints put the game out of reach after Brees completed a 46-yard pass to Michael Thomas to get the ball to the Panthers 5-yard line.
Gano's 39-yard field goal cut the Saints' lead to 14-6 late, but Saints fullback Zach Line scored on a 1-yard run in the final minute of the half, making it 21-6.
Yet despite the offensive struggles for most of the game, the Panthers still had a chance to pull it out when Brees and Payton made a decision to gamble on fourth down at the Carolina 47 yard line with under two minutes to go, knowing a first down would seal the victory. On a fourth-and-2, Brees threw the ball up, and Carolina's Mike Adams reeled in the ball for what ended up being a 16-yard loss of field position.
