CHARLOTTE, N.C., Nov. 7 (UPI) -- Drew Brees piled up 253 yards and connected for a pair of touchdowns Sunday in the New Orleans Saints' 34-3 rout of Carolina.

Brees finished the game 27-of-43 in the passing department with one interception. One of his scoring strikes went to Jimmy Graham, who grabbed a 19-yard TD pass for his first career score.

Jabari Greer added a 24-yard interception return for a touchdown and Jeremy Shockey caught a 7-yard TD pass late in the first quarter but suffered a rib injury on the play and didn't return for New Orleans (6-3).

The Saints won for third time in four games while the Panthers (1-7) dropped their second straight.

Carolina signal-caller Matt Moore could complete only 3-of-6 passes for 13 yards before leaving with shoulder injury. Jimmy Clausen and Tony Pike finished up the game in relief.
