The Panthers have one main concern in tonight’s game against the New Orleans Saints, controlling Drew Brees. Last season, the Panthers learned the hard way that Brees, when left unattended, can lead to their defeat. He once threw four touchdowns in a 31-13 victory over the Panthers, and a couple of weeks later, the Panthers sacked him six times leading to a win 17-13 in Charlotte. The Panther’s main focus will be to not allow Brees to get into a rhythm, because once there, he is unstoppable. Right now, the Panthers are ranked 29th and the Saints 30th in the NFL in defense efficiency, but the Saint have a stronger offense than the Panthers. The saints are also ranked second in yards per game with 445.3 yds. and yards per rush at 5.1. It’s looking like the Panthers may be facing a loss, but anything is possible.
