Thursday Night Football heads into Carolina as the Panthers welcome in the New Orleans Saints.
Both teams dropped heart-breakers on Sunday, looking to rebound as they are both under the .500 mark.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints brought a new meaning to taking a bad beat.
New Orleans scored a game tying touchdown with under 2:00 minutes to play in the contest, needing an extra point to secure a lead over Denver and force them to drive the field. Denver promptly blocked the extra point and took it back for 2 points, resulting in a stunning 25-23 loss for New Orleans.
While that was clearly the most important part in the contest, New Orleans has a lot of blame on themselves for even being in that position. The Saints turned the ball over 4 times, 2 of which included fumbles by Michael Thomas in the 4th quarter.
Both fumbles resulted in Denver points.
QB Drew Brees continues to be locked in though, he has now thrown for 3 or more touchdowns in 4 of the last 5 contests.
Brees has also led the Saints to a 2nd best 30.2 points per game.
Carolina needs every win they can get here. After starting the season off at just 1-5, the Panthers put together back to back wins and led 17-0 in search of win number 3 in a row.
Offensively, they went cold and threw a pick six in the 2nd half, while the defense failed to find any stops late in the game. The Chiefs eventually kicked a game winning field, stealing one from Carolina and putting them in a difficult spot going forward.
One silver lining from all this has been the Panthers defense returning to form.
Carolina allowed just 10 points to the Rams, with 7 of those coming with just 1 minute to play in the contest, and then held the Chiefs to only 256 yards and no touchdowns.
While it’s clear the offense has to step up, the defense is going to play a huge role here in the next few weeks. Getting stops on third down and forcing turnovers to set up the offense is extremely crucial, especially with them struggling,
