Cam Newton (shoulder, ankle) fine for Panthers against Saints

Wide receiver Kevin Benjamin out for rest of the game

That output hasn't helped get the Saints in the win column, though, they're 0-2 on the season after a 36-20 loss to the Patriots, while the Panthers are sitting at 2-0 after a 9-3 win over Buffalo.

The Saints might not be able to stop anyone, but they still have Drew Brees.

New Orleans has to slow down a Carolina offense that has enabled the Panthers to have a time-of-possession advantage of 59:06 to 30:54 in the last six quarters. In fact, they rank dead last in the National Football League allowing a whopping 512 yards per game, and are next to last in points allowed at over 32 a contest. But the defense quickly caved and allowed 10 quick points so that New Orleans went into the locker room down 30-13. If you've been waiting for rookie running back Christian McCaffrey to put up some big numbers, this is probably the game. Do not expect this game to be where they figure it out, with the likes of linebacker Luke Kuechly and defense tackle Kawann Short lining up defensively for the Panthers. This can come as part of the passing attack, so it will be noteworthy to see whether Klein, who played for the Panthers his entire career until going to the Saints in the offseason, recognizes the schemes. "Too many struggles on defense, and the offense is lackadaisical".

"The way they've been playing, no, but against Carolina, it's a divisional game, and when it comes to divisional games, all bets are off", one man responded.

On the other sidelines, a large contingent of Saints, including star running back Adrian Peterson, sat on the bench. The rushing game averages just over 70 per game with no touchdowns so far. And as Cam Newton gets healthier, he will get better and the offense will improve.

The Saints are hit by injuries: CB Marshon Lattimore (concussion), T Terron Armstead (shoulder), T Zach Strief (knee), and CB Sterling Moore (chest) are all ruled out of Sunday's game. The Saints upset the Panthers to get to 1-2 with a one-point road victory in Charlotte.
