Saints QB Luke McCown
In his first start since 2011, the veteran backup completed 16 of 17 passes in the first half and 31 of 38 for the game for 310 yards.
Panthers TE Greg Olsen
After burning the Saints for 10 catches for 72 yards and a TD in the last meeting, he outdid himself with eight catches for 134 yards and two TDs.
Saints G Senio Kelemete
In his first career start, the third-year man helped keep McCown upright all day, save for an out-of-bounds scramble to the line ruled a sack.
Saints CB Brandon Browner
His lone penalty (he had four last week) helped sustain the Panthers’ go-ahead TD drive. And he was twice burned for gains of 50-plus yards.
