We have reached Wildcard weekend with some very good games set to take place.
The last game to kick off will take place on Sunday, and is an NFC South showdown.
The Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints will face off in this game. Both of these teams are coming into this game off a loss.
The Saints have won each of the games played between these two teams this year. Each of those wins was by ten points or more.
The Carolina Panthers blew a golden opportunity in the last game, as they could have been the team hosting this game, but they lost and those hopes went out the window.
Cam Newton really struggled in that game, and that will probably be the x-factor in this game and will decide if they have any chance two win this game.
Against the Falcons in the last game they were only able to put up ten points total, and although the defense played decent, those ten points weren’t enough to really give them a chance to win the game.
For the Panthers their defense has been good this year for the most part, but has struggled against the Saints giving up 31 and 34 points in the two games.
That defense is going to need to be better then that. They probably won’t have to hold them to ten points, but they are going to need to try and keep this a lower scoring game.
If this game becomes a shootout, they are going to have a lot of issues advancing to the next round of the playoffs.
New Orleans Saints
On the other side of this match up is the New Orleans Saints who also come into this game off a loss, but that loss didn’t really hurt them in terms of the playoffs. although it could have if the Panthers would have won their game.
For the Saints everyone knows about their offense, but the biggest surprise has been the way the defense has been playing.
Coming into this game they are giving up 20.4 points per game, which has been the biggest difference between this years team and the few years before it.
The higher the scoring this game is, the better the chance they have to win the game. If they can get this into a shootout, they should be able to win this game with ease.
