Week 2 is here and today's game features a division clash between two NFC South foes. The New Orleans Saints will do battle with the Carolina Panthers at Bank of America Stadium and both teams find themselves coming off surprising losses in Week 1.
These two teams are tied all time at 17-17 against one another.
The Saints have a four game winning streak against the Panthers heading into this game.
This is the first meeting between the two teams after the infamous last game of the 2011 season that saw the Saints run up the score and the first since the Bounty Gate scandal came to light, mentioning Panthers quarterback Cam Newton as being a marked man.
