The Carolina Panthers were riding a wave of stellar defensive play, but then they allowed the New Orleans Saints to score 38 points on them. While they still won the game, many people were wondering what happened to Carolina’s defense.

Well, as Ed Werder of ESPN reports, Luke Kuechly had the perfect answer to what happened.
