New Orleans Saints
The Saints come marching into this Monday Night matchup sporting an 11-2 record that ranks them as the best team in the NFC South. Having already clinched the division, the Saints are assured a spot in this year’s postseason. Now all they’re trying to do is lock up that No. 1 NFC seed, which they’re currently in the running for. Ultimately they’ll have to beat out the 11-3 Rams for it, so New Orleans cannot afford any slip ups in the final 3 games of the season. They’ll be facing Carolina in two of those matchups so tonight’s contest should really set the precedent hereafter. The NFL online betting odds are pegging New Orleans as a heavy favorite, which was to be expected given the stark comparison in each side’s stats. Right now the Saints are putting up 34.4 per game while Carolina is scoring 24.9. Defensively the Saints give up 21.8 while the Panthers allot 25.5.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (3,643 passing yards, 31 TD, 4 INT), Alvin Kamara (793 rushing yards, 11 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (1,218 receiving yards, 8 TD, 102 REC).
The Panthers enter tonight’s contest sporting a 6-7 record after nearly a half-season long losing streak. It seems that Carolina isn’t able to beat anybody at the moment, seeing as how the Browns beat them 26-20 this past weekend. Now instead of facing a rookie they’re facing one of the most precise quarterbacks the league has to offer. Considering how inconsistent Carolina has been in the past month or so, they really don’t stand much of a shot against the well-oiled machine that is New Orleans.
Players to Watch: Cam Newton (3,264 passing yards, 24 TD, 12 INT), Christian McCaffrey (926 rushing yards, 7 TD, 2 F), and DJ Moore (676 receiving yards, 2 TD, 47 REC).
