Panthers running backs cut wrestling promo for Saints playoff

Panthers running backs cut wrestling promo for Saints playoff

The second round of the NFL Wild Card playoffs starts at 1:05 p.m. Sunday on CBS between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Buffalo Bills, followed by the Carolina Panthers at the New Orleans Saints at 4:40 p.m. on FOX.

The Panthers struggled in both games with the Saints, giving up a season worst 400 yards of offense to New Orleans in their last meeting. He could have easily been the goat had the Panthers taken advantage of his questionable decision, but in the end his defense prevailed, and the Saints are going on.

New Orleans did well to limit tight ends in most games during the regular season, and doing so again Sunday would give the Saints a great chance to win.

The Vikings had faced all three of their potential divisional round opponents during the regular season, beating the Saints 29-19 in Week 1 and topping the Rams 24-7 in Week 11 before losing 31-24 to the Panthers on December 10.

Perhaps someone should take that broom and whack Payton over the head with it after he almost cost his team the game. Expect another tight game on Sunday with an improved Panthers offensive performance highlighting the day. "I know the team's ins and outs".

Drew Brees may be the Saints' quarterback, but this is not his typical Saints team.

In the rematch, Brees was solid, while Newton was better than earlier in the season.

"Him and Cam have timing together, chemistry", Saints safety Vonn Bell said.

Forecast: Freezing temperatures over the weekend, snow Monday
That's the real-world implications of a National Weather Service wind chill advisory, which will be in effect until 8 a.m. For this weekend, the temperature will drop to about 9 Friday night with a wind chill value of zero.

"Whoever is guarding him. you got to understand who you're going up against", linebacker Manti Te'o said.

"He was my hero". New Orleans is lead by a two-headed monster at running back between rookie standout Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram. They will run up against the Panthers defense, which is ranked No. 7 in the league.

"A team beats you twice and you get to play them a third time?" wide receiver Russell Shepard said. "This weekend should be a much better showing".

The No 8 overall pick out of Stanford was strictly a third down back behind veteran Jonathan Stewart, and neither have been very successful running the ball. Turner has missed three games with a concussion.

He has just 17 catches for 191 yards and one touchdown this season, and had only one reception in Carolina's loss to Atlanta last week. He practiced on a limited basis this week and was listed as questionable.

He can't play like he did in a 34-13 loss to the visiting, then-winless Saints in Week 3, when he threw three interceptions, got sacked four times, posted a 43.8 QB rating and didn't look fully healthy from off-season shoulder surgery.
