CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Drew Brees threw for 201 yards and three touchdowns, the Saints had five interceptions and New Orleans defeated the Carolina Panthers 33-7 to wrap up the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs. The Saints will host the Chicago Bears in the wild-card playoffs next weekend. Ty Montgomery ran for 105 yards on 18 carries for New Orleans who became the first team to sweep the NFC South by going 6-0 since the division was formed in 2002. The Saints still managed to run for 156 yards despite playing without Alvin Kamara and Latavius Murray.
