The last time these two teams met up, it wasn’t pretty for the Saints.
To be fair, New Orleans was down several coaches due to testing positive for COVID-19 and they had a majority of their key players out due to injuries. Plus, Carolina still had a healthy Christian McCaffrey and that led to quite the butt whooping in Charlotte.
Fast forward 15 weeks later and the Panthers have completely crumbled. They’re a totally different team without McCaffrey and it’s shown pretty much since they drafted the Stanford wonder. Sam Darnold and Cam Newton aren’t the answer at quarterback and that’s clear as day.
The Saints have been very up and down as well but they’re the better team, at least on paper.
Who is on the call for Saints-Panthers?
This game surprisingly got flexed into the 3:25 CST slot, which is shocking considering some of the more competitive games on the schedule this week. But, be that as it may, when the Saints and Panthers kick off at 3:25, it’ll be Brandon Gaudin and Matt Millen on the call.
Gaudin has done a lot of work in college basketball and isn’t typically someone who calls NFL games, at least not in the past few years. Millen is a former NFL linebacker who is now in the broadcasting business. These two don’t call many games but with no Thursday or Saturday games and no BYE weeks, the NFL had to find some announcer teams that aren’t typically called into action.
The Saints’ quest for the playoffs starts and could potentially end this weekend when the Panthers come to town. Gaudin and Millen will have us covered with all of the on-the-field action.
