Huge, huge, huge game for the Panthers today as they play the Saints here at home on a rainy but unseasonably warm Sunday afternoon. The Cats got smoked two weeks ago on Sunday Night Football in front of a national audience against the Saints in New Orleans, and not only do they want revenge for that but a victory today would also secure a playoff berth for the Panthers for the first time since 2008. A win today for the Saints would see them clinch the NFC South and a first-round bye:
Saints-Panthers: A huge game. If the Saints win, they clinch the NFC South and a first-round playoff bye. If the Panthers win, they clinch at least a playoff spot and are in the driver’s seat for the NFC South and a first-round playoff bye.
Needless to say, you know which scenario I’d like to play out today and going forward.
Game time is 1 pm ET and it’s being aired locally on Fox.
