#6. THROW THE FIRST PUNCH AND HIT THE BULLY IN THE MOUTH
The Panthers finished 15-1 last year, winning their 3rd consecutive division title. Yet the Saints gave them two of the most hard-fought (and entertaining) games of the year.
This match up WILL be physical, and it’s important that the Saints match the Panthers “hit-for-hit.” This is a great opportunity for the New Orleans Saints to take a gigantic step forward in their development into a playoff contending team, as well as causing a young team to grow stronger together.
The guess here is that they do exactly that.
