NFL Playoffs 2017: Panthers at Saints

These NFC South foes dislike one another so the fireworks should make this fun for non-aligned fans.

NFL: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints
Will we see him throw more than pass today?
Derick E. Hingle-USA TODAY Sports

The NFC South has three teams in the playoffs. The Falcons upset the Rams yesterday, and today the Saints and Panthers are going at it. This division might have taken the AFC North’s crown as the deepest division in the NFL.

Cam Newton and Drew Brees are two of the premier quarterbacks in the NFL today. Love ‘em or hate ‘em (and both have their critics) they have reputations for putting their teams on their backs and willing them to victory. This afternoon’s game should be interesting if only to see the reactions of both quarterbacks on the sidelines when things aren’t going well.

The Saints are at home, and finally have a defense worth AF, so, as great as Cam is, I have a hard time taking the Panthers over the Saints today. Expect to see some pouting and outlandish clothes in his press conference this evening.
