Panthers Have Shot At Redemption As They Host Saints

Posted by Stan Simmons on 2/4/2014 4:47:55 AM

The Carolina Panthers and New Orleans Saints squared off just two weekends ago, and that time it was the Saints who walked away with a 31-13 victory. That loss ended the Panthers’ eight game winning streak, but they may have started a new one by beating the New York Jets last weekend by 10 points. The Saints however found a way to lose to the struggling St. Louis Rams last Sunday, meaning whoever wins this game will temporarily hold the NFC South division crown as both teams have a 10-4 record to date.

What To Watch For From The New Orleans Saints

Apparently the loss to the Rams last weekend affected how sports books look at the Saints as they aren’t even the favorite despite winning the last matchup between these teams. The reason the Saints lost last weekend was in large part because of the two interceptions Drew Brees threw, something that’s very uncharacteristic and unlikely to happen this coming Sunday. Against the Panthers last time Brees was turnover free and even threw four touchdowns to go with his 313 passing yards. It was quite possibly Brees’ best game of the season, and given how tough the Panthers defense is I would be surprised if he puts up similar numbers this time. One interesting fact that all sports bettors should be aware of is the Saints’ 3-4 record when on the road. That means the Saints have accumulated all their losses on the road, and have a losing record away from the Superdome.

What To Watch For From The Carolina Panthers

While the Saints have struggled on the road, the Panthers have been nearly unbeatable on their own home turf, which is where this game will be taking place. The Panthers are 6-1 at home and the play of Cam Newton is a large reason why as the third-year quarterback is coming off a home game in which he threw for 273 yards, one touchdown, and accumulated a 119 quarterback rating. While Newton has undoubtedly been better throwing the ball this season, the run game is what really stands out for the Panthers as they average 130 yards on the ground per game, good enough for eight in the league. Newton contributes to the ground attack as well, but the two other workhorses you’ll see this Sunday are DeAngelo Williams and Mike Tolbert.

Outlook

The Saints and Panthers headline the NFL in Week 14, and although it was the Saints who ran away with the game early, expect this weeks matchup to be a much closer battle given it takes place at the Panthers’ home stadium. The Panthers defense is much better than they looked against the Saints last time, and this is the reason I’m going with the riskier pick and making the Panthers my selection to emerge from this game victorious. The Panthers hold teams to just 211 passing yards per game, and although Brees will eclipse this mark, he won’t have the wildly successful day like he did two weekends ago.

Pick: Panthers
