New Orleans Saints' defense falters late, pass protection falters often at Carolina: Film Study

If anyone cares to read the autopsy report

New Orleans Saints linebacker Curtis Lofton felt nauseous after the defense gave up a late touchdown on the Carolina Panthers, who had no timeouts and only 55 seconds remaining on the clock for their final drive. I'm willing to bet he wasn't the only one as Saints fans back home also probably grabbed for barf bags.

The final drive orchestrated by the previously ineffective Cam Newton shouldn't negate just about every other play the Saints' defense made in New Orleans' 17-13 loss last Sunday at Bank of America Stadium. The stout play of the defense hasn't been overlooked, judging by the reaction of fans throughout social media and the rest of the Internet.

But that last drive obviously played a major role in the team's demise as Newton woke up from his 59-minute slumber just long enough to snatch away a Saints win, an NFC South crown and potential first-round bye as the NFC's two seed.

The Offense could have killed that game off!

I don't think I would say the D faultered, I think they give up some points 10 in the way I see it , no matter what the scoreboard says. I would actually say, the other 7 points was caused by the O and an int. giving them a short field. I totally agree with Rail Boss.

Goes to show that TEAM is the factor.
When your O blows it for most of the game, it is your fault D when you mess up at the very end.

Amen brother. To criticize our defense in that game is pure stupidity

Lion's share of the blame for this loss, as well as a few other, goes to the offense.

Atleast the kicking game was something no body was talking about . Looks like Sean can now sit back and rely on getting the 3 points when the offense gets stopped . We have not had that feeling in awhile...graham shows that a field goal try does not have to just squeak through... The middle of the goal is open too.... Very encouraging !!!!!

Do you guys think that Brees takes enough of the blame for the losses where he threw interceptions that turned into points for the other team?
