New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers In the first NFC South matchup of the season, the Carolina Panthers welcome familiar rivals, the New Orleans Saints, to Charlotte on Sunday. The Panthers are currently 2-0 after wins over the San Francisco 49ers and the Buffalo Bills.
Contrarily, the Saints enter Week 3 looking for their first win of the season after a tough starting schedule of the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots. Neither team made the playoffs in 2016, and this game will be vital in changing that trend for whoever wins.
The Saints are going to improve their defense if they hope to win this game. New Orleans enters Week 3 ranked 32nd in yards allowed and 31st in points allowed. The Saints have allowed 1,025 yards in two games. To compare, the Panthers have allowed 393 yards. The Panthers offense hasn’t looked too impressive in their first two weeks, but the Saints haven’t proved they can stop any offense.
Due to their defensive struggles, the Saints will need to rely on their offense in this game. Quarterback Drew Brees has only thrown three touchdowns this season, which is on pace for his lowest touchdown total since 2005. The Panthers have only allowed six points in their first two games of the season, so if Brees is going to step up it will have to be against one of the elite NFL defenses.
