Coming off of their bye week, the New Orleans Saints will host the Teddy Bridgewater-led Panthers. Can they pick up a victory?
For the first time this season, the Saints will be able to host a game with fans.
After plenty of rumors circulating that they would play at LSU’s stadium, the team and the city were able to reach an agreement for fans to be allowed at the Mercedes Benz Superdome, so even though there will only be 3,000 of them, the Saints will be able to enjoy an improved home-filed advantage.
The first five weeks of the season were rather turbulent for New Orleans. At the end of the day, though, they finished 3-2, and with an easier schedule coming up, they are in a good position to still make a deep playoff run.
It all starts by hosting the 3-3 Panthers, led by former Saint Teddy Bridgewater. Thought to be competing for the No. 1 overall pick, Carolina has surprised many by their performance this season; they would surpass the Saints in the standings with a win.
Can the Saints hold off a divisional foe? Let us dig into the numbers.
