NEW ORLEANS (WGNO) — The New Orleans Saints are still in the NFC playoff hunt with the team’s 18-10 victory over the Carolina Panthers in the home finale inside the Caeasars Superdome on Sunday, Jan. 2.
The must-have win, like most this season, was largely due to the play of the Saints defense led by Cam Jordan, who recorded 3.5 sacks against their NFC South rival – 7.5 in his last three games.
Defensive back C.J. Gardner-Johnson also came up big with a game-clinching interception to seal the win and keep the team’s playoff hopes alive with one regular-season game remaining – a road trip to Atlanta to face the Falcons (7-9).
