New Orleans Saints
Panthers coach Ron Rivera isn’t downplaying the significance of this Sunday’s game against the New Orleans Saints. When it comes to regular season games, Rivera said, “It’s about as big as it gets.”
The Carolina Panthers still have a great chance at being the NFC South champions and making a run into the playoffs, but there is still work to do. Unfortunately, they’ll be getting an angry New Orleans Saints team yet again, but fortunately, it is a Saints team that is rather awful on the road.
Their eight-game win streak may have come to an end at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, but the Carolina Panthers still have the inside track for a playoff spot. An NFC South title is not out of the question either, but there is some work to do and they will need a little help for that one.
Coach Ron Rivera said Carolina’s 31-13 loss to the Saints Sunday night was “humbling experience” and could help his team to refocus as it makes a playoff push.
Drew Brees often makes the extraordinary look routine, particularly during night games in the Superdome. Sometimes even the best defenses don’t stand a chance. Carolina’s didn’t on Sunday night, when the Saints rolled to a 31-13 triumph in which New Orleans took back sole possession of first place in the NFC South.
It had to come to an end sooner or later, but the Carolina Panthers did not think that their eight-game win streak would come crashing down like it did on Sunday night. The New Orleans Saints rebounded big time from their bad loss last week and took it to the Panthers in the Superdome.
The Carolina Panthers will need to try and attack the rushing defense of the New Orleans Saints as Rob Ryan won’t let an opposing passing game thrash them again. With that, the Panthers will get one running back returning to the field while another will likely sit on the sidelines.
