Although everything is heading in the right direction for the Black and Gold, the Saints still have to play four NFC South opponents in the next four of five games. Two of those games come against the Atlanta Falcons. The Saints come in at 8-3 and look to be primed for a playoff run.

The Carolina Panthers come into town looking for the sweep in the division series. The Panthers are trying to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Saints are looking for revenge after getting walloped 34-17. This time around, the Saints decide to pack the box and make Cam Newton beat them.

When the Panthers start to depend solely on the passing attack, the Saints will be ready to tee off with an aggressive EDGE rush. The Mercedes-Benz Superdome is breaking decibel levels at this point. Drew Brees plays much better and carves up the Panthers secondary. After this win, the Saints are in full control of their destiny before heading to Atlanta next week.

Final: Saints 41 Panthers 31
