In their NFL Week 7 matchup, the Panthers lost to the New Orleans Saints, 24-27, and it was a bad follow up from their loss against the Chicago Bears. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater did a good job of keeping the team in the game as he had two touchdown passes and they were all in the second quarter. He finished with an outstanding 82% in completion and 254 yards. Both TD passes are given to DJ Moore who also led the team’s receivers with 93 yards.
