Panthers at Saints, Sunday Night Football Open Thread

Cam Newton will try to put his team in sole possession of first place in his first Sunday Night game of the season. - Streeter Lecka

Sunday Night Football Open Thread.

In a matchup that will greatly affect who wins the NFC South and who must try to make it as a wildcard, the Carolina Panthers (9-3), on an eight-game winning streak since a 1-3 start, travel to face the team they are tied with atop the NFC South, the New Orleans Saints (9-3) in the Superdome.

Game Time: 8:30 p.m. ET

TV: NBC

Online: Audio PassGame Rewind

Odds: Saints -3

How will the Saints rebound on a short week after getting blown out in Seattle Monday night and not getting a flight back until Tuesday afternoon? Panthers quarterback Cam Newton has played well on the team's eight-game winning streak, but how will the young quarterback perform in his team's first Sunday night game of the year in what could decide his division? Will the Panthers defense, led by possible defensive player of the year linebacker Luke Kuechly, be able to stop quarterback Drew Brees and his Saints' offense that seems unstoppable when the team plays at the Superdome? Use this as an Open Thread to discuss the action.
