NEW ORLEANS -- Drew Brees saw his face on giant Superdome video boards, then nodded and smiled as a jubilant crowd applauded the star quarterbacks latest milestone and the meaningful way in which he hit it. Brees passed for 313 yards and four touchdowns and New Orleans beat Carolina 31-13 on Sunday night to regain sole possession of first place in the NFC South and snap the Panthers winning streak at eight games. In the process, Brees became the fifth quarterback to eclipse 50,000 career yards passing. "Love this offence. Love what Sean Paytons put together," Brees said. The Panthers defence had not allowed more than two touchdowns in a game this season until the Saints (10-3) scored three in the second quarter alone, when Brees completed 14 of 16 passes for 159 yards. The Saints also became the only team this season to score more than 24 points against Carolina (9-4), which entered the game No. 1 in scoring defence, allowing 13.1 points per game. Brees first two scoring strikes went to Marques Colston, who made nine catches for 125 yards. Jimmy Graham added two TD catches, his second making it 31-6 in the fourth quarter. "We just had great balance," Brees said. "Marques came up with some huge catches, as did Jimmy. The line did a great job ... and the defence did a great job of getting us the ball." New Orleans sacked Cam Newton five times and did not allow a touchdown until 5:15 remained. Junior Galette had three of New Orleans sacks and Cameron Jordan two. The Panthers had the ball for 11:30 of the first quarter, showing an early ability to move the ball in the face of an energized and loud Superdome crowd, but only got two field goals out of it after New Orleans came up with clutch third-down stops, including one on third-and-goal from the 6. "Im surprised and disappointed. Were a better team than we played today," Carolina coach Ron Rivera said. "They have the crowd behind them and theyre on turf, not natural grass, which is a little bit different. It helps them as far as their speed and their timing. The things that they do here, they do very well. Well see how things go when they come to Carolina." Last Monday night, New Orleans went to Seattle looking to lead the race for the top playoff seeding in the NFC, only to fall 34-7 and drop into a tie with Carolina atop their division. But the Saints looked like legitimate contenders again in their return home, where they are 7-0. They became the first team not to lose a turnover to the Panthers all season. Brees completed 30 of 42 passes in becoming the first quarterback to pass for at least 4,000 yards in eight straight season and pass for 30 TDs in six straight seasons. New Orleans now owns a one-game lead over the Panthers with three games to go, but travels to Carolina in two weeks. "Here we are, attempting to make another run at it," Brees said. "Obviously, some records and some other things, milestones along the way that you get to share, but Im just glad to be on the journey with this group of guys. Brees best drive began with 2:01 left in the first half and New Orleans at its own 24. He immediately found Lance Moore for 21 yards, Colston for 19 yards and Darren Sproles for 20, setting up Grahams 5-yard TD catch to make it 21-6. Newton was 22 of 34 passing for 160 yards, DeAngelo Williams returned from a quad contusion that sidelined him last week, gaining 52 yards on 13 carries. "It was a great measuring stick for who we are and where we have to go," Newton said. "The best thing about this is we have an opportunity to face this team again in two weeks. Those guys just were better than us today. Are they better than us? No." The Panthers struggled to move the ball on most drives after the first quarter, when Graham Gano hit field goals of 45 and 24 yards. Brees other TDs went for 8 yards to Graham and for 6 and 15 yards to Colston, who was hardly surprised by the QBs quick return to form. "Youve just got to see him throughout the week," Colston said. "The man works like Ive never seen. He deserves every bit of success that he gets." Notes: The other four QBs with 50,000 yards are: Brett Favre with 71,838, Peyton Manning with 64,009, Dan Marino with 61,361 and John Elway with 51,475. ... Panthers RB Jonathan Stewart left the game with a knee injury, the severity of which was not immediately disclosed. http://www.nhlblackhawkshockeyshop.com/Red-Brent-Seabrook-Jersey/ . While the spotlight has been on potential first overall draft pick Jadeveon Clowney and his 40-yard time, and top quarterback prospect Blake Bortles during the throwing drills, top prospects Greg Robinson and Sammy Watkins have impressed scouts enough to solidify or even boost their spots on draft boards. http://www.nhlblackhawkshockeyshop.com/Red-David-Rundblad-Jersey/ .Y. - Dustin Tokarski stopped all 43 shots he faced as the Hamilton Bulldogs blanked the host Syracuse Crunch 3-0 on Saturday in American Hockey League action. http://www.nhlblackhawkshockeyshop.com/R...k-Leddy-Jersey/.

Play hard, play tough and play rough. The philosophy has been a lesson in frustration for opponents.BOSTON -- The Boston Red Sox placed struggling third baseman Will Middlebrooks on the 15-day disabled list Saturday with a fractured right index finger and recalled infielder Brock Holt from Triple-A Pawtucket. The 25-year old Middlebrooks suffered the injury in Fridays loss to Detroit when he attempted to field a line drive in the first inning. Its his second trip to the DL this season after missing 19 games with a strained right calf in April. Red Sox manager John Farrell was unsure how long Middlebrooks will be sidelined, but said hell be in a splint for five to seven days before attempting anything.dddddddddddd. "Depending on how he responds to treatment after that, thats when well first look to initiate any baseball activities," Farrell said. "Its hard to say how long hell be down." Holt was up with the Red Sox earlier this season when Middlebrooks was on the DL. He hit .348 (8 for 23) during that stretch with four RBIs. Middlebrooks was hitting just .197 with two homers and nine RBIs. Holt is in the starting lineup for Saturday nights game against the Tigers, playing third and batting ninth. cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
