Are the Carolina Panthers a threat to the New Orleans Saints in the NFC South?
It’s a simple question with no real answer. The Saints sit at 9-2 while the Panthers are right behind at 8-3 and riding a major win streak.
Carolina has an elite defense it has been able to ride, which surely matches up well with the Saints offense. The Saints and Panthers still play twice this season for NFC South supremacy, once in Week 14 and again in Week 16.
The good news is the Saints have a stellar defense that ranks great against the pass and in the top half of the league against the rush. The offense gets the publicity in New Orleans, but when the two sides meet, it’s a safe bet the game will come down to defense more than anything.
We’ll dive deeper into the matchups as they approach, but for now we want to know what you think. Are the Panthers a legit threat to the Saints in the NFC South? How will their two matchups play out?
