New Orleans Saints Top NFC South; Showdown in Week 6

3 of 4

Carolina Panthers vs. Atlanta Falcons:  The Panthers will travel to the Georgia Dome on Sunday to face their second NFC South game in a row.  They will look to have a different outcome than last Sunday against the Saints.

The Panthers hung with the Saints all game and put on a fantastic show.  QB Cam Newton is proving his doubters wrong and the Panthers defense made some good plays against a great team.

Newton sold an old college “option play” for a DeAngelo Williams touchdown against the Saints which you rarely see.  Newton will have viable weapons with TE Greg Olsen and WR Steve Smith who have provided clutch performances.

I picked the Falcons to win last week in their game against the Green Bay Packers, which look justified at first.  A meltdown in the last half of the game quickly turned the tide for a Packers victory.

The Falcons, like the Panthers, are looking for a division win to gain some confidence and try to right their ship as Week 6 rolls around.  A stark contrast from their season last year at this point.
