New Orleans Saints: Way Too Early 2016 Win-Loss Prediction

11 of 17

Week 11 Thursday, November 17th, 7:25pm at Panthers

The NFL really hurt the Saints giving them this quick of a “turnaround” on their schedule.

They get ONLY 3 days of rest after playing the defending champion Broncos, and then travel to go play the defending NFC Champions.

Great teams have to deal with tough situations like this, though.

If my prediction is right and the Saints beat the Panthers in their first game they play, then the Panthers will be dying at a chance to get a revenge win. With the tough turnaround that the Saints will be on, the Panthers are getting them at the perfect time to get their revenge.

To win this one, the Saints will need to come out and not let the physical pain of this turnaround get to them. They need to play a clean game with no turnovers, and stop the Panthers when they have too.

Unfortunately, this game proves to be too tough with playing both Super Bowl teams back to back.

Prediction: Panthers 27, Saints 17

Record: 5-5
