In the NFL, the Carolina Panthers beat the New Orleans Saints yesterday, 41-10. 

Panthers Coach Ron Rivera said he was pleased to end a six-game losing streak.

“It's been a while since we've really felt good about what we felt we could do in terms of the guys that we had playing, getting used to the guys that we're playing,” Rivera says. “I think everything just kind of fell into place and came together.”

Rivera says the Panthers have finally adjusted to lineups with new players.

Panthers Quarterback Cam Newton passed for three touchdowns and ran for another.

“Victory is always a sweet feeling, but we can't be complacent about this,” Newton says. “You know, we're just doing things that we're supposed to do.”

It seems he started a scuffle with frustrated New Orleans after he went over the pile to score. Panthers tight end Brandon Williams was ejected for punching Cam Jordan.

The Panthers will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers next Sunday.
