With the Falcons on their bye week, the thing we care about most is how the rest of the NFC South fares. We’ll get to see the Saints and Panthers in primetime, albeit in the worst possible primetime slot.
Both of these teams have struggled this year, but the Saints came into 2016 with zero expectations and have been surprisingly competitive all year, so I’m watching them warily. The Panthers, meanwhile, have looked like a bag of hot, wet garbage for most of the year after playing in the Super Bowl back in February. Life comes at you fast.
Here’s what you need to know for the game, which is coming right up and will stream live on Twitter.
