Saints march all over Panthers in dreadful 34-13 loss for Carolina

Saints march all over Panthers in dreadful 34-13 loss for Carolina

Yesterday was not a good day for the Carolina Panthers. Well, that was one gigantic poopfest. The Carolina Panthers allegedly played a football game yesterday against the New Orleans Saints, but despite the box scores notating this event occurring I don’t remember actually seeing it. I saw a group of people wearing Panthers uniforms running around making terrible decisions, but I’m not sure I can call that football. One positive we can take away from yesterday is it’s just one game. It was one very bad, awful to sit through, hard to watch game... but it was still just one game. There...

Panthers vs. Saints Final Score: Panthers Offense struggles again, lose 34-13

Panthers vs. Saints Final Score: Panthers Offense struggles again, lose 34-13

The Carolina Panthers lost their first game of the season. After two successful weeks, the Panthers came back to Earth against the Saints. The offense continued its stagnant start and the defense struggled to stop the Saints. Here are the takeaways: The pass protection was just awful. Cam was sacked four times and struggled to get the ball downfield. Even when he did, Cam struggled to be accurate with his passes. The rushing game started off strong, as every Carolina rusher averaged 4 yards per carry. However, the Saints outscored the Panthers early due to redzone struggled so they...

Panthers vs Saints: 2nd half open game thread

The Panthers trail the Saints 17-6 at the half. The Panthers trail the Saints 17-6 at the half. The offense looks dreadful and the defense is doing all it can to keep the Saints’ high-powered offense out of the end zone. If the Panthers want to win they’re going to have to improve things in the 2nd half. Oh, and Kelvin Benjamin is doubtful to return. That’s not good. Stay here to chat about the 2nd half as the action unfolds. You know the drill. This is now an open thread!

Panthers vs Saints game day inactives: Ryan Kalil to miss second straight start

Tyler Larsen will start in his place at center for the Panthers. The Panthers and Saints have listed the players who will not suit up for today’s game. Ryan Kalil will miss his second straight game with a neck strain, so Tyler Larsen will start in his place. Greg Van Roten is the backup center today. Jeremy Cash is also out due to injury, but the rest of the inactives are healthy scratches. The Saints will be without their two starting offensive tackles and one of their best defensive players (CB Marshon Lattimore) so the Panthers will need to take advantage of this situation if they want...

Panthers vs Saints: Can Drew Brees escape sacks?

Panthers vs Saints: Can Drew Brees escape sacks?

One key to this game will be Drew Brees’ ability to mitigate pressure. It’s hate week. The Saints are a terrible team. This should be easy, right? Of course, if you’ve been paying attention to the Panthers then you know the last thing they call easy is a divisional match up. Keep in mind that match up is against an all-time great quarterback in Drew Brees and all of a sudden you should be at least a little nervous. We know the Saints have a joke of a defense and an offensive line that makes ours look good. Put all of that aside and pay attention to one thing if the score is still...

The Panthers look to stay undefeated when the Saints come marching into Charlotte

The Carolina Panthers hope they leave this Sunday with a 3-0 record on the young season. In case you haven’t heard, the Carolina Panthers are 2-0 and the New Orleans Saints are 0-2.

Both starting offensive tackles for New Orleans have been ruled out on Sunday. Can the Panthers take advantage? As the Saints come limping into Bank of America stadium this Sunday, the Panthers seem poised to start off the season with a nice three game win streak.

With that said, let’s take a look at the matchups that could play huge roles in...

Made from Scratch: Panthers vs Saints

Heading into week 3 the Panthers are 2-0 and have their first showdown with a division rival on tap. Here’s a delicious dish to make for the game. Week two brought a lot of indigestion to Panthers fans regardless of the fact the team won the game. It wasn’t exactly a pretty victory, the offense didn’t score a single touchdown, but in the end... a win is a win. Now, we look ahead to the New Orleans Saints, a team that is struggling on defense, but always has a potent offense. This will be the first real test to find out just how elite the Panthers defense is. At the same time though,...
