New Orleans Saints
The Saints are coming off their best game of the year after hammering Green Bay 44-23. However, they have not won a road game this year. The Panthers are hoping to continue that trend, and they will be bringing back a familiar face in running back DeAngelo Williams.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have to find a way to win on the road if they plan to take over first place in the NFC South. That’s something they haven’t been able to do this season.
The Saints and Panthers are both 3-4 and yet tied atop the NFC South. New Orleans has an extremely quick turnaround after playing on Sunday night.
The NFC South has often been looked at as one of the power divisions in the NFL, but that is the furthest thing from the truth this year. At the midway point of the season, not a single team is over the .500 mark, and now the struggling Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints will play for first place.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Panthers coach Ron Rivera said he expects running back DeAngelo Williams to play Thursday night against the New Orleans Saints with first place in the NFC South on the line.
The Carolina Panthers just can’t seem to get back on track, and they are fading at the worst time imaginable. They’re in the middle of one of the hardest stretches of games in the entire NFL, and now the surging New Orleans Saints are coming to town.
With the last three weeks delivering a 1-2 record with two blowout losses and a huge comeback needed for the win, the Carolina Panthers have to right the track somehow. They’re going to have to do it fast too because the next five games are one of the toughest of any team in the entire NFL this season.
The New Orleans Saints had a vastly improved defense in the NFL in 2013, but it never hurts to get a bit more veteran leadership and skill onto the roster. That’s what they did by adding Champ Bailey during the offseason, and he is looking for a Super Bowl ring before his stories career ends.
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers will need to rewrite history if they hope to repeat as NFC South champions this season.
It won’t be easy.
