New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints have a complicated chance of clinching the first-round by in the National Football Conference playoff picture. First, they have to win this upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers. Next is the Green Bay Packers should suffer a loss against the Chicago Bears while the Seattle Seahawks winning against the San Francisco 49ers. The team had a slight slump losing back-to-back games against the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles. They eventually bounced back hard with a 19 point lead over the Minnesota Vikings while Drew Brees looks very much healthy.
Players to watch: D. Brees QB (GP 11 CMP 253 ATT 358 CMP% 70.7 YDS 2741 AVG 7.7 YDS/G 249 LNG 52 TD 21 INT 6 SACK 11 SYL 79 RTG 105.4), A. Kamara RB (GP 15 ATT 187 YDS 932 AVG 5 LNG 49 BIG 7 TD 16 YDS/G 62.1 FUM 1 LST 0 FD 58 GP 15 REC 83 TGTS 107 YDS 756 AVG 9.1 TD 5 LNG 52 BIG 9 YDS/G 50.4 FUM 0 LST 0 YAC 735 FD 35).
The Carolina Panthers have managed to snap their three-game losing streak against the Washington Football Team. Right now, the Carolina Panthers are now looking forward to retooling in the offseason and a loss can bring them higher in the upcoming NFL draft. This team is projected to pick 9th overall and would be looking to draft a quarterback and they would need to go up the draft to get a chance to draft Jaylen Waddle from Alabama. They can opt to go for an offensive lineman instead and they could go for Rashawn Slater of Northwestern. Even if this team does their best, it is difficult to see them prevail over the New Orleans Saints.
Players to Watch: T. Bridgewater QB (GP 13 CMP 308 ATT 441 CMP% 69.8 YDS 3360 AVG 7.6 YDS/G 278.8 LNG 75 TD 14 INT 8 SACK 26 SYL 165 RTG 95.1), M.
