Sean Payton Takes Out The Broom As Saints Celebrate Sweep vs. Panthers

Sean Payton Takes Out The Broom As Saints Celebrate Sweep vs. Panthers

Newton targeted his tight end 10 times, resulting in only one reception (for 10 yards) and one of Newton's three interceptions.

If the Panthers hope to win, they must find a way to limit not only Kamara but the entire rushing attack orchestrated by coach Sean Payton and the Saints. And with Drew Brees, the Saints have the best chance to set off another celebration in New Orleans on Sunday. A large part of that was the improvement of the Saints running game with Mark Ingram and Alvin Kamara. But Newton, Carolina's leading rusher this season, didn't run much in two losses to New Orleans, gaining 67 yards on nine carries.

Meanwhile, Saints coach Sean Payton will be trying to change or disguise most everything his offense has done against the Panthers, which may be hard as those old plays accounted for 400 yards in the 31-21 win and 362 yards in the 34-13 victory.

Carolina Panthers tight end Greg Olsen has caught more passes against the New Orleans Saints than any other team during his 11-year career. If Newton has to pass the ball 30 or more times, that favors New Orleans. The Panthers were 1-1 in those games and are 2-1 all-time in conference championship games. Olsen could prove to be the X-factor in the game, providing Newton a big target over the middle of the field he lacked in the previous matchups. Though New Orleans bumbled to an 0-2 start, they found success in a Week 3 win over Panthers, going 34-14 at Carolina's home turf.

"We play at 4:40, so be in for the show".

"I've said before, I thought that two-game road stretch we took was important at Carolina and at London", Payton said. They didn't look good in last week's 22-10 loss at Atlanta with the division on the line.
