New Orleans Saints are still in the race for a spot in the playoff rounds but need a lot to go their way in the remaining two games of the normal season. After an excellent display against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, which saw them shut out Tom Brady historically, they faltered in their next encounter against the Miami Dolphins losing out 20-3. A 7-8 record sees them currently third in the South division of the NFC, and they need a victory against the Panthers to get back their playoff hopes.

Carolina Panthers have had a shocking season this year and have a 5-10 record so far. They are not even in contention of making it into the playoffs either and will be out to fight for their personal pride and glory. Panthers’ coach Matt Rhule will look to win back some of his critics as calls to remove him as coach of the side have garnered major support over the past few weeks.
