With New Orleans losing, the Panthers (10-4) pulled even with the Saints in the NFC South with their rematch set for next Sunday in Charlotte. If Carolina wins its final two games, it will clinch the division and a first-round bye. The Panthers haven’t been to the postseason since 2008.

The Saints (10-4) missed their first chance to clinch a playoff berth, trailing 24-3 at the half.

The Rams (6-8) recovered an onside kick to set up a field goal, and Michael Brockers blocked a field-goal attempt.
