Saints News, 9/9/16: Saints Start Season on Right Foot Without Playing a Game

New, comments

It took the Carolina Panthers 14 games to lose a game in 2015. This year, it took them one. On Sunday, the Saints have a chance to put their other foot forward as they face off against the Raiders, hoping to avoid an 0-1 start to the 2016 season.
