The 1-6 Panthers continued to demonstrate last week why they are one of the worst teams in the NFL by losing to the St. Louis Rams 20-10. They’ll try to rebound here at home today against the Saints, while the Saints (5-3) will look to keep the race for NFC South leader tight (Atlanta and Tampa Bay are at 5-2). The Panthers uphill battle will be made all the tougher by the fact that running back DeAngelo Williams is still out with a sprained left foot.
What’s the weather like here today? Cool, very fallish, but sunny – the high is supposed to be around 60 degrees.
The game starts at 1pm ET and will be broadcast on Fox.
My NFL pool picks: ATL, BUF, NE, JETS, NO, BAL, SD, AZ, NYG, IND, KC, GB, CIN.
Update – 8:09 PM: Another embarassing day: Panthers lose 34-3. On top of that, more injuries.
Is this season close to being over yet?
