That may have set the tone for the day, but the one that ended up winning the game came at the end of the first half. Carolina had just turned the Brees fumble into seven points, having gone on a nine-play, 65-yard drive that ended in Teddy Bridgewater’s second touchdown pass to D.J. Moore. The Saints were trailing for the first time, they had one timeout, there was less than two minutes remaining in the half and the Panthers were set to receive the opening kick of the second half.
