DeAngelo Williams added 69 yards on 14 rushes and Jonathan Stewart came back from an ankle injury to chip in with 51 yards on the ground.

Steve Smith led the Carolina receivers with three catches for 104 yards.

Jon Beason intercepted a Drew Brees pass with 23 seconds remaining to seal the Panthers' win.

Brees finished 31-of-49 for 325 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions for New Orleans (0-2).
