Welcome to Saints Gameday!
Carolina Panthers (11-0) at New Orleans Saints (4-7)
The Saints host the team with the best record in the NFL, the undefeated Panthers. Today's game was originally scheduled to kickoff at 12:00pm CST, but was flexed due to the combination of Carolina being undefeated so late in the season and Cincinnati/Cleveland being a predictably lopsided matchup. Now, with the late kickoff, the Saints have the chance to either shock the NFL with a huge upset or embarrass themselves in front of a huge national audience.
Carolina's record speaks for itself, they're good, damn good. The thing they've been best at though, is taking full advantage of a weak schedule, the same weak schedule that the Saints have floundered against all season. The Saints, without Drew Brees, came within a fingertip of beating the Panthers in Carolina in Week 3, falling 27-22. Now, the Saints get an opportunity to play spoiler at home in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
On a personal note, the last time the Saints played a game on my birthday, they won one of the most stunning games of the 2009 season, coming back against Washington and winning 33-30 in overtime, thanks to a series of miraculous plays. That win preserved their own undefeated streak that year. If the Saints wanted to go ahead an pull out one of those amazing wins today, I'll gladly accept it. Who Dat!
