Head-to-Head New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers
As division rivals, the Saints and Panthers have played several times over the years – there’s a significant sample size in terms of their past head-to-head battles. Whether that sample size is instructive, however, remains to be seen.
The Panthers entered a new era in 2023 between the arrivals of head coach Frank Reich, the staff that came with him, and rookie quarterback Bryce Young. They spent last week on the losing end of a game with the Atlanta Falcons, falling 10-24 while throwing two interceptions to Jessie Bates and failing to stop a conservative Falcons offense.
The Saints are in their second year under head coach Dennis Allen, and brought on veteran quarterback Derek Carr in the offseason to stabilize what’d been a nebulous position for the team since Drew Brees’ retirement. Their 1-0 standing comes after a narrow 16-15 win over the Tennessee Titans, where Carr did enough to win while the defense tormented Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill to the tune of three interceptions.

New Orleans Saints vs Carolina Panthers Predictions
There are a lot of reasons to like Carolina in this one – recent trends work in their favor, a win for the Panthers would represent regression to the mean for both teams after Week 1, and the Saints weren’t overly impressive in last week’s win. The under may prove to be a good play once again as well, given neither team was part of a game last week that would’ve hit a 40.5 total.
Prediction: Under 40.5
