The Carolina Panthers and the New Orleans Saints are squaring off on Sunday night football. The two NFC South teams are tied atop the division with 9-3 records. The winner of this game will be in the driver’s seat for the remainder of the season. The Saints are trying to bounce back from an embarrassing loss to the Seattle Seahawks on the road, but Panthers head coach Ron Rivera isn’t taking the team lightly.
“There are a lot of things they’re doing offensively that make you say, ‘Wow,’” Rivera told the team’s official website. “A lot of people thought last year that Jimmy Graham had an off-year, but now watching him he looks like he’s in the form he was two years ago. Darren Sproles, I’ve got a bottle of Tums next to me because he is a heck of a football player. And Drew Brees is having a classic Drew Brees season.”
