Saints and the NFC South, a roundup

2 of 5

Carolina Panthers (4-3)

As for the rest of the NFC South, the season has fallen short of expectations. The injuries to Cam Newton and Greg Olson derailed what looked to be a good season for the Carolina Panthers.

Even not playing well, they came up with wins against San Francisco and Buffalo before the big wins against New England and Detroit.

However, back to back losses against the Eagles and Bears, plus the loss to the Saints show Carolina’s weakness – the offensive line.

It’s kept Christian McCaffrey from being effective as well. And the defense is a step behind also, with Luke Kuechly having gone into the concussion protocol for the third time in just over 2 years. He may be available this week as they play Tampa Bay.
