We take a look at three players the Panthers need to stop if they want to beat the Saints.
Are you ready for some football? Should be an exciting game between the Carolina Panthers in the New Orleans Saints in a Monday night football affair. In a game that the Panthers must win in order to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, the Saints look to spoil the party. It should be a game full of offense, as quarterbacks Cam Newton and Drew Brees look to lead their teams to victory. If nothing else, it should be a fun game.
In the all-time series, the Panthers lead by a 24-23 margin. The last time these two teams met was in the wild-card game back in January. For the sake of everyone reading this, I will not recap that game as we all know what happened and would like to move forward. Let’s just say Drew Bress had a great day at the office. If there was any consolation to the Saints win, it was that they lost to the Minnesota Vikings in the next round.
Without further ado, we take a look at three players the Panthers have to focus on if they want to beat the Saints.
