NFL Roundup: Saints Oust Panthers, Jaguars Edge Bills To Advance

NFL playoffs: Titans-Chiefs, Falcons-Rams kick off wild-card weekend NFL Wild Card Playoffs: Sunday games, TV, live scoreboard, updates

More than enough air to turn those held breaths into screams and cheers of celebration. "There's no better feeling than knowing you just won, not only won but won a playoff game as a team and now you're on to the next one".

Talking is one thing, but actually following through is another.

The Saints ended Carolina's season by taking a 31-26 decision.

The NFL confirmed after the game at Mercedes-Benz Superdome that it was investigating the Panthers' treatment of Newton. Their Week 12 loss in Los Angeles that snapped the streak was followed by a home matchup against Carolina.

Cam Newton's valiance was clear in a losing effort Sunday at the Saints.

The Vikings are the No. 2 seed in the NFC while the Saints are No. 4. And it was against his former team, the Carolina Panthers. But the Saints won the most important game between the teams on January 24, 2010, at the Superdome and two weeks later beat Indianapolis 31-17 in Super Bowl XLIV. The Panthers and Saints each had a number of advantages in major statistical categories.

New Orleans is 13-5 ATS in their last 18 road games and 42-20-1 ATS in their last 63 games against a team with a winning record while the over is 9-3-1 in their last 13 playoff games. The Panthers stuck with their plan to establish the running game, the reason they had a almost nine-minute edge in possession time in the first half. It was the most nerve-racking final seven minutes of football for the Saints in years. Cam had suffered an injury during NFC first round playoff game that took place on Sunday in New Orleans. Would I have punted and forced Carolina to go 90 yards with no timeouts?

And then, New Orleans was able to put it into the gear. Newton finished the game with 349 passing yards and two touchdowns along with 37 rushing yards.

Newton didn't blink. He led a touchdown drive that took just 59 seconds, powered by a 56-yard catch and run by Christian McCaffrey.

At first, the Panthers QB would leave the game.

That's when New Orleans locked down.

Not only did Jordan commit to the troll, but he did so in a timely manner, because sometimes pettiness can't wait. It was something not yet seen from this team in 2017. And the 80-yarder was a thing of beauty late in the first quarter, when the game was still tied 0-0. Same with the Falcons during the first meeting.

The Jaguars visit Pittsburgh next Sunday in an American Conference second-round matchup while the Tennessee Titans visit New England in next Saturday's other American Conference semi-final. [Vikings quarterback] Case Keenum has played phenomenal this year for them on offense and that defense is as stout as ever. Same can be said for the franchise. Heck, Jordan even splurged for the overnight shipping to ensure the bottle would arrive before Newton packed up his locker at Bank of America Stadium. "It became obvious very early on that they wanted to stop the run and that was gonna provide us with some opportunities outside".
