It’s been a depressing season so far for the Carolina Panthers (0-3), and today they’ll have an uphill battle in trying to get that first win as they battle the New Orleans Saints (2-1) at the Superdome. The Saints will be without running back Reggie Bush as he recovers from a broken leg suffered in the Sept. 20th game against my co-blogger Irish Spy’s 49ers. Here are today’s Panthers inactives. Clausen will once again get the start at QB, and it will be interesting to see how he does on his first road trip as a starter.
For what it’s worth, here are my NFL pool picks for this week: SF, BILLS, BAL, NO, TEN, CIN, GB, STL, IND, HOU, SD, PHI, NYG, MIA.
Game time is 1 ET and it will be broadcast on Fox.
Update – 5:53 PM: The Panthers put on a decent effort today but in the end the Saints were the winners 16-14. Steve Smith left the game with an ankle injury.
