Carolina Panthers defense makes big play on Lance Moore (GIF)


It’s been a battle in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome tonight between the Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints. Both teams boast great offenses and both have defenses capable of shutting most teams in the NFL down.

We saw the power and prowess of the the Panthers defense when Mike Mitchell made a great, albeit questionable, play on Saints wide receiver Lance Moore which saved a touchdown.

Moore looked to be wide open in the endzone for Drew Bees who fired the ball off to him. But Mike Mitchell not only saw this broken coverage but stormed over and made a touchdown saving hit on Moore.

Now, the question is did Mitchell get to Moore before the ball was there and was it pass interference? This is a classic case where two different fan bases will have two wildly different views on the play.

No flags were thrown but the Saints are still having their way with a Panthers defense that hasn’t been gotten to like this all season long.

    no that actually was a bad throw by drew…mitchell made a good play and went after the ball with one hand while hitting moore at the same time…but its cool we dominated anyway…and should have had one more touchdown for Colston…
