The Panthers Take on a Dangerous Saints Team

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers: Prediction, preview, pick to win

In response to President Donald Trump's remarks about NFL player protests during games this season, every team in the league has staged some sort of silent demonstration.

For the second straight week, the Saints defense was absolutely scorched, this time in a 36-20 loss to New England.

Brees completed 22 of 29 passes. New Orleans held the Panthers (2-1) to just two field goals in the first half, and the pass defense limited Carolina quarterback Cam Newton to an incredibly inefficient game as he finished 17 of 28 for 167 yards with three interceptions and a 43.8 passer rating. But I am saying they need to make Newton feel Carolina blue - within the National Football League rules, of course - when he's in or outside the pocket.

Of course, this is assuming the Panthers can effectively execute on offense, something they have struggled with so far this season.

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.

It probably wouldn't have affected the outcome of the game, but Rivera's decision to punt on fourth-and-5 from the Saints' 35 was a head-scratcher. That puts the onus on Carolina's talented by inconsistent receivers, like Kelvin Benjamin, Devin Funchess and rookie Curtis Samuel, to start being a factor all game long instead of in sporadic bursts.

"We showed that we can be a great defense", said Saints linebacker A.J. Klein.

Even if the Saints defense somehow keeps the game in the 20s, Saints quarterback Drew Brees and his offense must outplay the NFL's No. 1-ranked scoring defense (6.0 ppg) which has yet to yield a touchdown. He has 10 catches for 146 yards and a TD in the past two meetings.

Brees has thrown for 1,252 yards and 12 touchdowns with three interceptions in his last four games against the Panthers. Newton will get kicker Graham Gano in position to make the winning field goal. Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan beat Panthers left tackle Matt Kalil on the play.

DICKSON A NONFACTOR: Ed Dickson replaced Olsen at tight end for the Panthers, but was a nonfactor in the passing game. The Saints are still looking for that first win this season.

Oh, Newton will run as a last resort but he's relying more on short passes, check downs, eating the ball and throwing it away.
