akes our calls, said in the warm up: six minutes

NEW ORLEANS -- After Drew Brees broke another NFL record with his latest 400-plus-yard passing performance, he stood on a podium and moved his right hand in an ascending motion while discussing the direction of the New Orleans Saints. Marco Reus Jersey .We want to be on this trajectory, Brees said as he moved his hand up and away from his body. I feel like we are.Brees passed for 465 yards and four touchdowns, Wil Lutz kicked a 52-yard field goal with 11 seconds left, and New Orleans pulled out a 41-38 victory over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.With his 15th 400-yard game, Brees broke a tie with Peyton Manning for the most all time in the regular season.Brees also led the Saints (2-3) to a second straight victory while Carolina (1-5) lost its fourth straight despite the return of quarterback Cam Newton, who missed last weeks loss to Tampa Bay because of a concussion.Newton passed for 322 yards and two touchdowns. He also ran for a 2-yard score and threw a 2-point conversion to Devin Funchess that tied the game at 38 with 2:58 left, completing a comeback from an early 21-0 deficit.However, Newton was also intercepted by Sterling Moore in the back of the end zone, stalling a promising first-half drive.Newton had little to say afterward, offering terse, vague answers to media inquiries or simply saying, next question. His demeanor nonetheless left little doubt how displeased he was with yet another close loss.Meanwhile, the quarterbacks coaches and teammates made it clear Newtons performance was the least of their concerns.He made some really good decisions, Panthers coach Ron Rivera said. When you score 38 points, you need to give yourself more of a chance to win.Panthers linebacker Luke Kuechly credited Carolinas offense for playing well and added, We just have to tighten some things up defensively. We just have to make a play.Tight end Josh Hill scored the Saints final TD on a difficult, leaping 8-yard catch that was initially ruled incomplete.But coach Sean Payton challenged the call and officials ruled on review that Hill had possession long enough for a completion before defensive back Zack Sanchez knocked the ball from Hills grasp.Brees didnt seem bothered that the Saints needed all of his prolific production to win and nearly squandered a three- TD lead.These are defining wins. These are wins you can draw from as the season goes along and really get a lot of strength from, Brees said. It gives you great confidence and poise when situations arise in the future.UNCONVENTIONAL TDSCoby Fleener ran for a 2-yard touchdown on his first career carry -- an end-around on a fourth-and-1 play that capped New Orleans opening drive. He also caught a 50-yard touchdown pass in the third quarter on a play that Brees said didnt quite develop as drawn up because Fleener and receiver Willie Snead ran their routes too close together, causing a convergence of players over the middle.All of a sudden all these bodies were in this melee and heres Coby, coming down with it and taking it the distance, Brees said. It worked out nicely.CLUTCH KICKINGLutzs winning kick came after hed missed an earlier attempt from 53 yards. Lutz said that the moment Carolina tied it at 38, he told punter Thomas Morstead, who also holds on field goals, and long snapper Justin Drescher, Lets go win the game.Like Ive been saying all year -- its about the next kick, Lutz said.TOP TARGETSSaints receiver Brandin Cooks had an 87-yard touchdown catch to highlight his career-high 173-yard outing on seven catches. Saints rookie Michael Thomas caught his third touchdown pass in as many games. Fleener had six catches for 74 yards.Funchess caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Newton and Carolina tight end Ed Dickson hauled in a 1-yard TD that Newton tossed as he scrambled to his left.PENALTY PRONEThe Saints were flagged for pass interference three times at or near the goal line, and the Panthers cashed in all three times with touchdowns. In all, New Orleans had 10 penalties for 126 yards.Panthers penalties included Kawann Shorts unsportsmanlike conduct penalty for leveling Brees after his touchdown toss to Hill.It looked like he straight punched me in the mouth, Brees said. Thats what it felt like.BACK IN ACTIONPanthers running back Jonathan Stewart returned after missing three games with a hamstring injury and rushed for 85 yards on 19 carries, including two short touchdowns in the fourth quarter.Hill played for the first time since injuring his ankle in Week 1.INJURIESSaints left tackle Andrus Peat, who was filling in for injured starter Terron Armstead, left the game late in the first half with an apparent left leg injury. He was replaced by veteran Tony Hills. ... Saints rookie defensive tackle David Onyemata also appeared to have a leg injury after a pileup near the New Orleans goal line in the fourth quarter and gingerly walked off the field. ... Panthers cornerback Daryl Worley was evaluated for a possible concussion.NEXT UPPanthers: Carolina has a bye week to try to figure out how to reverse its sinking fortunes.Saints: New Orleans travels to Kansas City next Sunday.---AP NFL website: and Julian Weigl Jersey . -- In a span of seven Washington Redskins offensive plays, Justin Tuck sacked Robert Griffin III four times. Roman Burki Jersey . The team says the Spain international has a muscle pull in his right leg. Barcelona hosts third-division side Cartagena in the return leg of their round-of-32 tie after winning their first meeting 4-1. . Vokoun departed practice on Saturday morning after discovering swelling in his thigh. He was taken to a local hospital where the clot was revealed. The club announced the surgery following a 5-3 exhibition loss to the Columbus Blue Jackets. In the space of 30 short minutes, Team GB stormed to two gold medals in the womens pair and mens four at Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas. It was a breath-taking performance from the two crews, built on power and sheer bloody-mindedness but also emotion, family, trust and fear.First up in the double gold run were Helen Glover and Heather Stanning who stormed home in the womens pair. It was their 39th consecutive win and it secured their place in history: they are the first female British rowers to retain their Olympic crown after their triumph at London 2012.But their focus speaking moments after their race was not on their personal journeys to Olympic gold, their place in history but instead, it was on the role their coach Robin Williams played in getting them to gold after he was diagnosed and then recovered from cancer a little over two and a half years ago.He [Williams] was quite chatty before the race, quite nervous and he was using a lot of words, Glover said. He is so passionate, he has done everything from todays chat to when he was dangerously ill and having to take time off work.He was still there for us to being away from his family for months on end, its just all him, we couldnt have done it without him.Stanning added: Without Robin wed be nobodies, hes the best coach in the world.Williams, 59, was diagnosed with bladder cancer in December 2013 and a month on he was undergoing life-saving surgery. By May 2014 he was given the all-clear but in those dark, life-threatening days of December and January, his message to the duo was succinct: carry on, email me your times.I needed to get paid so I had to get better quickly, Williams said. It was an incentive. I was in hospital and I was walking around the ward - 20 ft, 30 ft, 50 ft at a time when they were saying a few steps is enough.Thats how it starts off and I now go running and biking. Rowing in itself is a journey but that makes it a bit bigger.Now standing alongside Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas minutes after Glover and Stanning had won gold, his face told the story of the emotional journey he had been through as he reflected on the key role the womens pair played in his recovery.They were a big, big part of my fight back, Williams said. I felt there was a lot to achieve still with them. I didnt lack drive to get better but it was an extra incentive.They were fantastic that year and now that I think we have got to Rio 2016 and won I feel we have completely written the last chapter of the book with the best ending possible for all of us.Whatever happens next we can hold this moment as a nugget in our memories and be proud and thrilled forever.As he spoke, the national anthem was being played as the mens fours picked up their gold; there was a wonderful synergy between the two triumphs. Their victory here in Brazil stretches the run for the mens fours to five straight golds from Sydney 2000 to now.Their individual motivation was divided between their friends and familys roles in getting them to the top of the podium but also the fear of failure, with the weight of history sitting heavy on their shoulders.George Nash, who won bronze in 2012, woke up in a cold sweat. This morning I thought I was definitely going to cock this up, he said. This feels like a gamble thats not going to go my way.Everythings just felt a little bit off and this morning I thought if the Aussies are on, and were not, were going to get turned over. That put the fear of God into me. And when we crossed the line thought wow, it has gone our way.The same went for Alex Gregory, who missed the births of two of hhis three children to pursue his charge to double Olympic gold following on from his 2012 success in the fours. Manuel Akanji Jersey. . Today I was looking at the guys on the launches on the lake, thinking: You dont know what I am feeling now. Youre just sat there bobbing around on the lake. I wish I could swap with you.I did feel pressure of history. I didnt want to let this record go. I didnt want to have to look [Sir Steve] Redgrave or [Sir Matthew] Pinsent in the eye. I didnt want to have to listen to the commentary of Garry Herbert [gold-medal winning cox from 1992] and James Cracknell.Their voices were going through my mind during the warm up: Oh my goodness, the British arent going to do it. You have to snap out of it as soon as those thoughts creep in. But it was always there. It was definitely there and it was a worry.Theyre horrible feelings. I dont enjoy those feelings; its not why I do sport. Its not for that adrenaline rush before the start; its a numb, horrible, painful feeling.But then came the relief. His family back home in Oxfordshire would have been fresh in his thoughts with Jesse -- he was on a rowing machine in South Africa when he was being born --Daisy, who arrived when he was competing in the world championships in South Korea, Jasper and his partner Emily watching on.Gregorys teammate Moe Sbihi also had family at the forefront of his mind and his voice cracked with emotion as he spoke. My main aim is to make my parents proud, he said. And thats it. I was picked to do this sport and Im really lucky but its just to make them proud.Then there was the yearly commitment of fasting through Ramadan while continuing his training. I relish it, Sbihi said. When I have to make up my fast in the winter its tough training but I get through it.I push myself to the limits with these boys but Im doing it without food and drink. I really like it -- its an unrivalled feeling. It challenges me and makes me mentally stronger.The approaches varied. Sbihi embraced the motivation of making his parents proud while Constantine Louloudis, who is said to be the pace setter in the group, tried to block out external factors, wary of being overloaded.Theres no lack of motivation, Louloudis said. In the run into the final I was trying to put things out rather than recall things as if you try and recall every bit of motivation, youre going to overload your mind with it. So Im not even thinking about my family here, my friends watching it, our coach -- Im not thinking about that. Now I can reflect on that with the gold but I had to focus on this.Moe, who makes our calls, said in the warm up: six minutes of pain for a lifetime of joy and make sure its not the other way round. And thats kind of it.And then as they crossed the finishing line, the fear disappeared to be replaced by relief and ecstasy.For Glover, Stanning, Louloudis, Gregory, Nash and Sbihi -- they have gone through the range of emotions to be here but as their loved ones, coaches and friends watched on from the stands, there was a moment of wonderful, serene calmness matched with sheer joy. The dark days, the self-doubt and sacrifices for all involved were momentarily forgotten and replaced by sheer fulfilment.You put yourself on the line and you feel the worlds closing in on you sometimes because youre going hell for leather and it just wont go away, Louloudis said. But you know if you weather that storm, youre going to have a lifetime of satisfaction.
