Which New Orleans Saints players could emerge as sneaky threats to the Carolina Panthers in their Week 7 clash at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome?

The time for talk is almost over for the Carolina Panthers as they go in search of a fourth victory of the 2020 season. Their task at the New Orleans Saints is a significant one and they cope in the face of such quality opposition will tell us plenty about what we can expect from Matt Rhule’s men during a tough stretch of upcoming games.

It is a contest that has plenty of intrigue and familiarity on both sides. Carolina Panthers quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and offensive coordinator Joe Brady are going back to their old stomping ground, which has the potential to help and hinder in equal measure depending on how much they rise to the occasion.

There is also a lack of receiving options for legendary quarterback Drew Breen on the other side. The decorated signal-caller will be without the services of Michael Thomas and Emmanuel Sanders, which all-but offsets cornerback Rasul Douglas missing out for the Panthers.

Although the Saints are obviously worse off without the stud wideout duo, there are still plenty of players who are going relatively under-the-radar that Carolina should ignore at their peril.

Here are four Saints players who could alter the course of the game if afforded too much time and space by the Panthers to do damage during a crucial Week 7 matchup.
