Divisional play starts this Sunday for the Carolina Panthers, as they’ll put up their 1-0 record to that of the New Orleans Saints’ identical 1-0 start. Talk about a battle of tried and tested undefeated juggernauts!
Ok, maybe not. But somebody’s ‘0’ is about to go.
Here’s how to watch and what to watch for in this NFC South clash.
When to watch

How to listen
WBT 1110 AM is the team’s local radio station.
The Panthers are 25-28 all-time against the Saints. That sway towards New Orleans has been recently helped by a dominant nine-game stretch, including the wild card round showdown from the 2017 campaign, where the Saints have gone 8-1 in the matchup.
New Orleans has also won four in a row in the series as well as the last four played at Bank of America Stadium.
What to watch for
Both teams have entered the 2021 season with new leaders under center. And, fortunately for them, they delivered in their respective debuts.
Carolina’s Sam Darnold completed 25 of his 37 attempts for 279 yards, one touchdown and no interceptions. He also ran one in for a 5-yard score in the 19-14 victory.
Jameis Winston took the reins from Drew Brees and did so successfully to kick off his run, passing for an obscenely odd 148 yards and five touchdowns in the 38-3 thrashing of the Green Bay Packers. We’ll see how they do in their second starts.
