NFL: New Orleans 16, Carolina 14

Oct. 3, 2010 at 5:16 PM   |   Comments

NEW ORLEANS, Oct. 3 (UPI) -- John Carney booted a game-winning, fourth-quarter field goal Sunday, handing the New Orleans Saints a 16-14 decision over Carolina.

Carney's decisive kick was one three field goals on the day. His signing earlier in the week as a replacement for the ineffective Garrett Hartley paid immediate dividends for New Orleans (3-1).

Drew Brees completed 33-of-48 for 275 yards and a touchdown. His target on the scoring strike was Lance Moore.

The Saints also got 47 rushing yards from Ladell Betts on 13 carries as he subbed for the injured Pierre Thomas.

The Panthers (0-4) were led by Jimmy Clausen, who went 11-of-21 for 146 yards and a score.

DeAngelo Williams ripped off a 39-yard scoring run for Carolina, which opened the season with four straight losses for the first time since 1998.
