Picks & Predictions: Saints vs Panthers 9/18/2023

September 13, 2023


Game Preview


Carolina Panthers players are feeling particularly desperate after their season opener loss to the Atlanta Falcons in 2023. The team is about to be thrust into the spotlight for the first time that year. Since the New Orleans Saints are in town for Monday Night Football and Bryce Young is making his competitive home debut, Bank of America Stadium is expected to be rocking.


While Sunday’s game wasn’t ideal, it was reasonable to expect some growing pains from the first overall pick in the 2023 NFL Draft. Especially taking into account the new offensive plan and the fact that the wide receivers had a hard time getting open.


The Saints, who opened the Derek Carr era with a victory over the Tennessee Titans, are up next for Frank Reich and company. They present a formidable challenge because of their elite defensive unit and talented offensive players; the Panthers can’t afford to take them lightly.


New Orleans’s strong defensive effort in Week 1 was the deciding factor in the Saints’ narrow victory over the Tennessee Titans. The Saints stifled Derrick Henry’s run game, allowing him only 63 yards on the ground and no scores while intercepting Ryan Tannehill three times.



The Saints’ offensive weapons, like Chris Olave and Rashid Shaheed, appeared potent in Carr’s first start despite his lackluster performance.


The Panthers had a tough time against their NFC South division opponent Atlanta Falcons in Week 1. Bryce Young, the first overall pick in 2023, had a mixed first season in the NFL. The Carolina defense also had trouble stopping the run in the first game, giving rushing touchdowns to Bijan Robinson and Tyler Allgeier.


After the first week of the season, the Saints look like the better team. After playing a game, Young should be better, but he may still have trouble against the Saints’ tough defense. When on the road, the team will rely heavily on Olave, Shaheed, and the healthy Michael Thomas to cover the points.
