3 ways the Saints could blow an easy Week 17 win
Letting Teddy Bridgewater have his way
As we said before, the last time these two teams met a couple of weeks ago, it was a showdown. Quarterback Teddy Bridgewater played what might be considered his best game of the season from a complete statistical standpoint.
It was a match between Drew Brees and Bridgewater. They both threw for two touchdowns, but Brees got the edge on yards with 33 more passing yards, and Bridgewater got the edge on completion percentage with 82.14 percent.
With the speed of the Panthers’ receiving corps, the Saints’ secondary is going to have to be on their toes. Without even noticing, Curtis Samuel, D.J. Moore, and Robby Anderson can quickly get behind the safety for a Bridgewater bomb.
New Orleans is going to have to keep Bridgewater in line or this game could turn out the opposite way. Even without McCaffrey and Mike Davis, the Saints’ can not just take this game for granted because they are 11-4 and the Panthers are 5-10.
