Peppers makes the big play

New Orleans appeared to have an easy field goal that would have given the Saints a comfortable 16-6 lead with 10 minutes left in the fourth quarter Sunday, but Carolina defensive end Julius Peppers blocked it. "We got a good push up the middle with Kris Jenkinsand Damione Lewis," Peppers said outside the visitors' locker room. "They got a good push and I just happened to get a hand up, and the ball hit me on that one." (Charlotte Observer)
