The (3-6) Carolina Panthers are hosting the (4-5) New Orleans Saints for Thursday Night Football. Kick off is at 8:25 PM EST and the game will be on NBC and the NFL Network. You can also watch the game on SB Nation here.
The Panthers are 3.5-point favorites, which points to a close match-up. Saints QB Drew Brees and Panthers QB Cam Newton are two of the best in the game so at least this game has the chance of being entertaining.
The Patriots don’t play either team this year and do not care which team wins; this would have a real effect on the playoffs, either, since both teams are on the outside of the NFC playoff picture.
Use this as the open thread for discussion.
