3 winners and 3 losers from Panthers win vs. the Saints in Week 2
Haason Reddick – Carolina Panthers OLB
The defense as a whole deserves to be here because they were incredible in maintaining the New Orleans Saints offense, but after making the defensive line a winner last week, I decided to single out one (maybe) defensive player today and give the honor to linebacker Haason Reddick.
Reddick had the best game among all the Carolina Panthers’ defenders and his performance from the get-go helped set the tone for the day.
In total, Reddick had three tackles, one for a loss and 1.5 sacks. He signed as a free agent this offseason and his ability to play defensive end or as an outside linebacker has helped the defense be elite in the first two games.
The former Temple star now has three total sacks in two games, proving his career-year with the Arizona Cardinals last season was no fluke.
Reddick applied pressure on Jameis Winston the entire game and basically made his life miserable with the help of Brian Burns, Morgan Fox, and DaQuan Jones.
Winston was limited to 111 passing yards on 11-for-22 completions. Reddick’s presence was just a huge part of his struggles.
