The Carolina Panthers versus New Orleans Saints in Week 18 of NFL action will take place this sunday.
The Panthers definitely had a rather unexpected start to the 2022 season. Around 3 months ago Matt Rhule was Sacked as the Head Coach of the squad after an awful 1-4 start to the campaign, later on Steve Wilks took over the helm as interim Head Coach for Carolina.
As soon as the move happened, the Panthers then decided to trade away Christian McCaffrey, arguably their best offensive player, to the San Francisco 49ers. This surprising move made everyone think a rebuild was going to happen for next year.
Wilks definitely deserves some credit for his ability to keep the Panthers team somewhat engaged between each other, as we saw them push for wins under such strained circumstances. Nevertheless, for obvious reasons, Carolina wasn’t able to hold off Tampa Bay last week as they lost with a 30-24 scoreline and fell to the dreaded 6-10 season. The Panthers are now officially eliminated from the playoffs stage, and their entire attention going into the 2023 rebuild season.
Taking a look at New Orleans, they were able to push for an impressive victory against the Philadelphia Eagles back in Week 17. Sadly this performance came in too late for the Saints, as they have also fallen off playoff contention even after their latest victory. A season tarnished by a plethora of injuries at key positions demolished the Saints, and sadly Dennis Allen was not able to debut in the playoffs in his first year as Head Coach.
While this match does not carry any playoff implications, both teams should look to test players to see which remain in their squad or what to look for going into 2023. Just taking a look at pure player talent we think this will be a Saints win.
