The Saints and Panthers will clash in an hour, with both still harboring hopes of an NFC South title. For the Panthers, this is more or less a win-or-go-home game. For the Saints, it's an opportunity to potentially seize control of the division if the Falcons can't pull off an upset Sunday.
Needless to say, I'm a Panthers fan for the day. Use this as your all-purpose open thread for the game, and root for Cam Newton and Ron Rivera to find a little magic and keep the Saints behind the Falcons, where they most certainly belong.
If nothing else, this is a good way to get invested in football for the day while we wait for Falcons-Packers tomorrow night.
