The Saints come into week two with one of the best secondaries in the entire NFL, while the Panthers suffered a major blow to theirs.

The Panthers are going to be without star cornerback Jaycee Horn on Monday Night against New Orleans, they announced earlier this week. That's a major blow to their unit that now only consists of Donte Jackson, CJ Henderson, Vonn Bell, and Xavier Woods. Considering the blazing speed that the Saints have in the wide receiver room, that's a tall task for the Panthers without their best cover corner.

The Saints, however, have a healthy secondary headlined by Marshon Lattimore, Paulson Adebo, Tyrann Mathieu, Alontae Taylor, and Marcus Maye. We saw the Saints' secondary intercept three passes against veteran quarterback Ryan Tannehill in week one and they could take advantage of the rookie Young in his Primetime debut on Monday Night.

The obvious advantage goes to the Saints here.
