Cam Newton helped the Panthers avoid their first loss of the season with a game-winning touchdown pass late in the fourth quarter of Sunday’s game against the Saints

Carolina trailed 38–34 when Newton led an 11-play, 75-yard drive that culminated in a 15-yard touchdown pass to Jerricho Cotchery with 1:05 left to play. 

The touchdown was Newton’s fifth of the game and gave the Panthers a 41–38 lead.

Watch: Saints block extra point, score first two-point return in history

The Saints turned the ball over on downs on the ensuing possession. 

Carolina improved to 12–0 on the season. The Panthers clinched a playoff berth earlier Sunday when the Falcons beat the Buccaneers
