Two teams not expected to be where they are in the NFC South meet as the Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints get set for battle.
Carolina currently sits in last place at 1-4, while the Saints hold just a 0.5 game lead on them at 1-3 in 3rd.
Things have gotten ugly in Carolina.
After Cam Newton sustained a concussion on a play he certainly could have avoided, Derek Anderson took control for Monday Night Football, at home, against the Bucs.
He turned the ball over 4 different times, including an interception on the 2 yard line that would have led to the go ahead touchdown.
QB Cam Newton will likely do everything in his power to make a comeback this week, as the Panthers season is hanging in the balance.
The good news for them here is that they get a very weak secondary. With receivers like Kelvin Benjamin and TE Greg Olson, the Cam Newton connection should be in full force here, should he play.
The Panthers are 1-4 ATS and 3-2 to the Over through their first 5 games.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints have been in the same kind of mess as the Panthers and it’s mostly thanks to their defense.
New Orleans is last in the NFL in terms of scoring defense as they allow 32.5 points per game. They sit 2nd last in pass yards against, as they have torched for 301.2 yards per game.
On the offensive side of things, New Orleans as stayed in every game thanks to their offense. The Saints are averaging 28.5 points per game and that is all thanks in large part to QB Drew Brees who has been extremely dominant this season.
Brees did have a sub par game up to his standards prior to the bye week as he only threw for 207 yards. However, the Saints made some big plays on both sides of the ball to secure a victory.
Here in this one, they know what they’re getting into here. They’ll get a hungry Panthers team that knows this is almost a must win.
The Saints defense can expect Newton to play and know he will be taking plenty of chances down the field as the Panthers look to gain their swagger back from last season.
