The New Orleans Saints are not off to a good start in Week 3. Down by multiple scores going into halftime, fans in Charlotte are abandoning their fandom.
The New Orleans Saints have had a division rivalry gauntlet to start the season. They started with an incredible comeback in Week 1 to defeat the Atlanta Falcons. Then, they gave up a defensive showdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
In Week 3, the Saints’ backs are against the walls again going into halftime. Down 13-0 to the Carolina Panthers, the Saints are going to have some work to do.
Fan in Charlotte abandons his Saints fandom on live TV
Following a near interception thrown by Jameis Winston on fourth down that gave the Charlotte Panthers elite field position, Saints fans across the country were in utter dismay. None more than those who made it to the game in Charlotte.
The FOX camera crew panned to Saints fans and caught some gems. While the focus was on a fan shaking his head, we couldn’t help but notice a fan behind him who removed his Saints shirt and threw it down.
Luckily, he had a friend to his side who consoled him. It’s a good thing, he’s gonna need it this afternoon.
Saints fans should be excited that there’s a whole half left yet to play. The Saints proved in Week 1 they work best in a hurry-up mode when their backs are against the wall, and that’s exactly where they look like they’ll be for the final 30 minutes of the game.
