Saints have 21-9 lead over Panthers at the half

Cam Newton

Cam Newton did not play well in two losses to the Saints this season. They'll also need their running backs to be fired up and ready to hit their lanes hard. "But the beauty of this is we get another shot, and this time it really means something".

Yesterday Fozzy Whittaker, Jonathan Stewart and Christian McCaffrey cut an old-school wrestling promo in the Panthers locker room. Not only did they defeat the Panthers twice, they did it decisively both times.

He has just 17 catches for 191 yards and one touchdown this season, and had only one reception in Carolina's loss to Atlanta last week.

I know this: If Bad Cam shows up for the 3:40 p.m. kickoff (Fox), and not Good Cam, Carolina's chances of winning diminish greatly.

It was Week 3 in Carolina; the Saints were 0-2 and just starting a nine-day road trip to Charlotte and London with their season already on the line. He played for Carolina in 2013 and in 2015 and '16. Case in point was a Week 4 victory in New England, when he threw for 316 yards and three touchdowns and ran for another 44 yards and a score. Coupled with extensive pressure on Brees from the Panthers front four, it's possible they could alter the dynamic and keep the game low scoring into the fourth quarter.

He often takes on as much as he can, but it's a delicate balance, and he'll nearly surely need more from his supporting cast to beat the Saints in the Superdome. "I think he's smart, he's tough, he blocks for the run, he enjoys competing and quite honestly, he does so many little things well in regards to zone or man that (on) third down or red zone". So for us, it's what we do. "They're going to make adjustments, and you have to make adjustments, as well".

Carolina spent the entire 2017 season trying to find its deep threat at receiver, working through injuries to heir-apparent rookie second-round pick Curtis Samuel and lightning-fast Damiere Byrd before turning to Kaelin Clay. The former Ohio State Buckeye will get to match talents with former MI wide receiver Devin Funchess, who leads the Panthers with 63 catches for 840 yards and eight touchdowns.

The nightcap features the fourth-seeded New Orleans Saints (11-5) and the No. 5 seed Carolina Panthers (11-5) at the Superdome.

"Yeah, I wanted to play Carolina because I want to see how they operate", Lattimoresaid. "What we were during the preseason wasn't a fluke; it's something we can truly be.' And we rolled with it from there", Saints defensive tackle Sheldon Rankins said of that Week 3 awakening.

The Saints became the 14th team in those 21 tries to complete the three-game sweep - a success rate of 66.7 percent. "Maybe things you did well, but from a playoff standpoint you understand that now you are in a single elimination tournament".
