Brees accounted for three touchdowns in the first half. He found Jared Cook for a 4-yard score, leaped in from a yard out to give the Saints a 14-3 lead, and hit Deonte Harris for a 4-yard touchdown right before the half.

Bridgewater finished 23-of-28 passing, 254 yards, two touchdowns.

Bridgewater connected with DJ Moore for a 74-yard touchdown, and a 7-yard score, both in the second quarter.

The Saints are 4-2 on the season. Carolina is currently 3-4 in 2020.
