Backup QB Luke McCown impressed his skeptics and the WhoDat Nation but it wasn't enough as the Carolina Panthers remain one of the unbeatens amongst the NFL.

The unbeaten Panthers are off to their best start following a 27-22 win over New Orleans on Sunday. The Saints remain in the NFC basement with a winless record.

Luke McCown completed 31 of 38 passes for 310 yards.

Carolina QB Newton went 20 for 31, passing for 315 yards with a pair of touchdowns and also ran for a score.

Saints host the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday night. Kickoff is 7:30 p.m..
