The New Orleans Saints need to bounce back after being ridiculed by the Seahawks last week as they host the red-hot Carolina Panthers, this Sunday at 8:30 PM ET at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The loss in Seattle brought a lot of doubts to the Saints, especially when they play away from their home; this weekend, however, they have the dome on their side.
“The weather did not play a factor. The noise? It’s loud, yes, it’s tough to communicate … but I felt like we did a good job communicating,” Drew Brees said. “We were prepared for that. We just got outplayed.”
The Carolina Panthers have won 8 games in a row, but they haven’t faced anything close to what the Saints offense brings to the table; despite they meet twice every year, always there’s something new with New Orleans.
“There are a lot of things they’re doing offensively that make you say, ‘Wow,'” Panthers coach Ron Rivera told the team’s official website. “A lot of people thought last year that Jimmy Graham had an off-year, but now watching him he looks like he’s in the form he was two years ago. Darren Sproles, I’ve got a bottle of Tums next to me because he is a heck of a football player. And Drew Brees is having a classic Drew Brees season.”
New Orleans is 1-11 ATS in its last 12 games when playing at home against Carolina. The betting odds have the Saints as 3 point favorites for this one.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
