Although the play of the Carolina Panthers on the field was sloppy yesterday, the undefeated NFC South squad kept its streak going by narrowly defeating its struggling conference foe, the New Orleans Saints, 41-38, at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans.

Led by the play of its Under Armour-sponsored quarterback, Cam Newton, the Panthers overcame a three-point first-half deficit to put up 28 points in the second half and eek out the three-point win. Newton, wearing Under Armour cleats in a road-inspired colorway, completed 28 of 41 passes, throwing for 331 yards. The quarterback matched a career-best milestone on Sunday, throwing five touchdowns in the game, a feat he also performed on Nov. 22 against the Washington Redskins.

The Panthers took the lead late in the fourth quarter, when Newton connected on a 15-yard touchdown pass with receiver Jerricho Cotchery — who also hit the field in Under Armour cleats. Newton then connected with fullback Mike Tolbert and receiver Devin Funchess on touchdown passes during the game and threw a pair of touchdown passes to receiver Ted Ginn Jr.
