This is Carolina’s last stand if they have any hope of making the playoffs. After blowing the Chiefs game last week, the Panthers have a short turn around with the Saints, another team that lost in dramatic fashion in Week 10.
I like the Saints to perform well on the road Thursday as they have all year. Through 10 weeks of the NFL season, I trust the weapons of Brees and company to mount serious offensive pressure that I don’t think the Panthers will be able to hang with blow for blow.
Cam Newton and his Panthers continue the trend of the Super Bowl loser under-performing the following year and also missing the playoffs. The Saints creep back to .500 and send the Panthers packing for 2016.
Saints +3.5 over PANTHERS
