The Carolina Panthers meet the New Orleans Saints in a NFC South division matchup in Week 2 NFL action from Bank of America Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The New Orleans Saints will be out to build on their 38-3 romp over the Green Bay Packers in their opening game. Jameis Winston threw for 148 yards and 5 touchdowns on 14 of 20 passing while Alvin Kamara rushed for a team-high 83 yards on 20 carries and Tony Jones Jr. had 11 carries for 50 yards. Deonte Harris led the Saints with 72 receiving yards and a score and Juwan Johnson had a pair of receiving TDs while Chris Hogan and Kamara each had a touchdown reception as well. Defensively, Zack Baun led the Saints with 5 total tackles while Marcus Williams and Paulson Adebo each had an INT for New Orleans in the win.

The Carolina Panthers will look to add to their 19-14 win over the New York Jets in their last game. Sam Darnold threw for 279 yards and a touchdown on 24 of 35 passing while Christian McCaffrey had 98 rushing yards on 21 carries. McCaffrey also added a team-high 9 receptions for 89 yards while DJ Moore had 6 grabs for 80 yards and Robby Anderson’s lone reception went 57 yards for a score. Defensively, Shaq Thompson had a team-high 10 total tackles including a sack and 5 solo tackles. Haason Reddick had 1.5 sacks and Thompson had an interception as well as Carolina’s defense was impressive, combining for 6 sacks as a team in the win.

New Orleans is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games following a win while the under is 4-0 in their last 4 games against the NFC. Carolina is 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 3-9-1 ATS in their last 13 home games while the under is 6-1 in their last 7 games following a win.

This is shaping up to be an intriguing matchup as these are two teams that impressed with their performances in week 1. With that said, I think the two offenses come to play again, and while these are two teams with superb defensive units, the playmaking ability on both sides is through the roof and should lead us to an over by the end of Sunday’s matchup.
