The Saints enter their contest this weekend tied with the Panthers in the NFC South standings. The Black and Gold hold the tiebreaker, thanks to a 34-13 victory over Carolina in Week 3.
The Saints still look strong for a playoff berth, but so much can change with only five weeks left in the regular season, starting Sunday in the Dome against Carolina.
"We've had battles with these guys for many. many, years. We've played in a lot of big games with these guys. They're a team that's used to playing these type of games. Over the last few years, we're a team that's continued to surprise a lot of us who've been here for a while, in a regards to the maturity level with youth in so many areas. The situation only gets bigger as we go along here," said quarterback Drew Brees.
