The Panthers Take on a Dangerous Saints Team

Carolina Panthers Kelvin Benjamin reaches for the ball as New Orleans Saints Kenny Vaccaro defends in the first half of an NFL football game in Charlotte N.C. Sunday Sept. 24 2017 The Panthers Take on a Dangerous Saints Team

Drew Brees racked up good passing numbers with 356 yards and two scores, but much of it came when the team was well behind.

The defense was stout for most of the game, especially compared to the porous performance from the first two weeks. The 10-time Pro Bowl quarterback has led the National Football League in passing for three straight seasons and already has 647 yards this season with three touchowns and no interceptions.

Overall, Newton has made three Pro Bowls and was also named as a First-Team All-Pro in 2015 while winning the NFL's Most Valuable Player award. McCaffrey's nine catches for 101 yards probably show the Saints they need to work on covering running backs.

The Carolina Panthers was hoping a matchup with the New Orleans Saints defense would help jump start a struggling offense. Translation: Big yards, Big plays, Big points.

Settling for the early field goal is never ideal against a quarterback of Drew Brees' caliber.

For the sixth time in seven tries, Carolina did not get a red-zone touchdown.

The Saints quarterback focused in on wide receiver Michael Thomas, who had five receptions for 50 yards and the touchdown catch.

According to SportsBook Review, the Panthers will be laying 5.5 points at home to the visiting Saints. Defensively, Carolina forced a fumble and combined for 3 sacks, all white stifling Buffalo's offense, holding the Bills to just 176 yards of total offense and controlling the ball for nearly two-thirds of the game, with the Panthers holding the pigskin for just under 39 minutes in the victory.

Quarterback Cam Newton, who didn't play at all during the preseason while recovering from shoulder surgery, has looked very rusty.

At least a dozen Jaguars took a knee during the anthem, including defensive standouts Calais Campbell and Jalen Ramsey, as well as their No. 4 draft pick, running back Leonard Fournette.

On Sunday morning in London, several Baltimore Ravens knelt for the anthem, and Jaguars owner Shad Khan stood on the sidelines, arms interlocking with two of his players.

Saints: DT David Perry, added to the 53-man roster this week, left with a left leg injury in the first half. I think that changes Sunday in a contest that turns into a shootout.
