CAR

The Carolina Panthers are 6-7 this season but just 1-6 on the road where it encounters Cleveland this week. The Panthers have lost four-straight games, with losses to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Detroit Lions, Seattle Seahawks, and most recently, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Carolina trails New Orleans by an irretrievable four games in the NFC South.

Despite its struggles this season, Cam Newton has been very good once again. The dynamics dual-threat quarterback has thrown for nearly 3,000 yards on 69.5 percent passing with 24 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. His passer rating is 99.8. Newton has completed nearly 1,300 passing yards just between his top two targets Christian McCaffrey and DJ Moore. McCaffrey has six of the team’s 24 passing TDs. He also leads the rush game with 863 yards on 163 carries with five rushes for 20-yards or more and five touchdowns.

Between Newton’s 450 yards and McCaffrey’s production, one has uncovered basically all of Carolina’s offensive attack, and Moore is the No. 3 rusher. That trio is the key to its offensive success, but it will struggle on the road where it has won just once this season.

N.O.

Drew Brees and dual-threat running back Alvin Kamara head the Saints’ top-NFL offensive attack. Brees has thrown for 2,964 yards at a 76.9 percent clip while averaging 8.9 yards-per-attempt. He averages 289.3 yards per game with 25 TDs on the season and just one interception. He has also only been sacked nine times (less than 1.0 per game) for a total loss of 71 yards.

Brees’ has an elite passer rating of 126.9. Kamara, meanwhile, has done it all for the Saints as a running back and wide receiver. He leads the team in rushing yardage with 617 and 11 TDs via the rush, while also being the No. 2 receiver with 56 of 72 targeted passes caught for 510 yards and four receiving TDs. Michael Thomas is the top receiver with over 1,000 yards and eight TDs, and a team-high 54 first downs.

The Saints have six others with 100 yards or more on the season, and it has 25 reception TDs to go with 19 via the rush. It is a balanced and potent offensive attack, and the Falcons will have its hands full with the multitude of ways Brees can punish a defense. Kamara won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year award, and he has only built on his rookie success.
