The New Orleans Saints (5-7) and Carolina Panthers (3-8-1) meet for the 40th time in their history on Sunday.

With the Panthers leading the series 20-19, a Saints win will tie the series matchup between the two.

The two teams are nearly identical in the point department, as the Saints have the slight edge in the series over the Panthers 817-810.
