How to Watch Saints vs. Panthers

How to Watch Saints vs. Panthers

The Saints can extend that winning streak to six with a win this Sunday over the Carolina Panthers.

Even though it's an exciting time for fans, it's also a very turbulent one because no one knows who will buy the Panthers once the season is over.

Quarterback Drew Brees threw for 376 yards along with 2 touchdowns. Both rushed for more than 1,500 yards from scrimmage with Kamara perhaps the most electric of the two. If they do, it could help change the outcome of a third meeting between the two teams this season.

Saints head coach Sean Payton almost cost his team the game when he made a decision to go for it on 4th & short with a 5-point lead, rather than punting the ball and trying to pin the Panther deep with less than two minutes remaining. The former Ohio State Buckeye will get to match talents with former MI wide receiver Devin Funchess, who leads the Panthers with 63 catches for 840 yards and eight touchdowns. New Orleans beat the Panthers, 31-21, in the dome on December 3 and won, 34-13, at Carolina on September 24. Except Newton, whose scrambles and zone-read plays will keep drives alive and allow the Panthers to stay close for awhile. Ingram was fifth in National Football League rushing with 1,124 while Kamara's split saw him do more damage (826 yards) after catching passes.

The Panthers are 3-0 in wild card games and 5-2 in first-played games in postseason - wild card and divisional round.

Tight end Kyle Rudolph, who'd been playing through a right ankle sprain, said he'd told coach Mike Zimmer he'd do whatever he needed to do to get through the Vikings' final three regular season games, knowing a bye would await the Vikings if they won those games.

The Jaguars advanced to face the second-seeded Steelers on January 14 in Pittsburgh.

Three of those possessions ended successful Graham Gano field goals, and one resulted in a Gano attempt that sailed wide of the uprights from 25 yards. The rookie caught five balls for 66 yards, while also rushing for 60 yards and two scores. He exceeded 120 receiving yards in both games in 2015.

"We start this time of year, and everyone is starting from scratch", he said.

Goodell was in Jacksonville for Sunday's AFC wild-card game between the Jaguars and Buffalo Bills after being in Los Angeles on Saturday night. "I think it brings hope for our fans and communities that their teams can turn it around". If Newton has to pass the ball 30 or more times, that favors New Orleans. "Not having him is significant and having him is huge", Saints coach Sean Payton said.

The nightcap features the fourth-seeded New Orleans Saints (11-5) and the No. 5 seed Carolina Panthers (11-5) at the Superdome. PFF previews the top player matchups of this win-or-go-home game.
