After a devastating loss 16-27to the Saint Louis Rams with their field goal kicker missing two short field goals and defense unable to force a turnover and allowed the Rams to gain 302 total yards. This loss did not permit the Saints to clinch a playoff berth, thus they need the win against the Panthers to do that. Their QB Brees did not have a good day as on the team’s first two possessions he threw two interceptions that allowed the Rams to score twice. The Saints coach Peyton indicated that after the disappointing loss to the Rams as they will more than likely make some changes to their starting lineup! They will do what they have to do to win this as it’s all about the Super Bowl hopes for 2013!
The Carolina Panthers also are out to win this game so they can take control of the NFC South and keep their Super Bowl playoff hopes intact. Actually the Panthers control their future and all they need to do is beat the Saints this Sunday, then they are in control of the NFC South. However, if they should lose to the Saints, it’s still not over depending on the outcome of the San Francisco and the Arizona Cardinals game. So if you’re an avid Panthers fan this weekend you need to root for the Seahawks to beat the Cardinals and the Falcons to beat the 49’ers. So apart from that put all your hope with your Panthers in this matchup. Should be a very interesting game and best of luck to the Saints and Panthers!
