The Saints now have the best record in the NFL.

Alvin Kamara scored on a 16-yard rush in the fourth quarter as the New Orleans Saints beat the Carolina Panthers 12-9.

The Saints, who how have the league's best record at 12-2, went down early as the Panthers opted not to punt on fourth down and instead Christian McCaffrey found Chris Manhertz for a 50-yard score.

Wil Lutz was true with the boot from 46 and 24 yards as the Saints went into the half 7-6 down.

But Kamara put on the jets and was able to get good blocking as he found the end zone with 12 minutes left to play.

The attempted two-point conversion failed, with Drew Brees intercepted by Donte Jackson and returned for two.

But a late drive from the Panthers was halted as Cam Newton's attempt to Ian Thomas fell short on fourth down as the Saints took the win.
