This should be a game where the Panthers take out their frustrations from getting stomped on by the Vikings last week. The Falcons have given up over 280 passing yards per game and 10 touchdowns, never fewer than three in a game. Newton has had plenty of trouble playing in Atlanta, but I think he shows up this week.The Saints have miraculously only allowed three passing touchdowns this season, but there's no doubting their defense is atrocious front to back. They have allowed over 300 yards passing per game and a 70 percent completion rate, while Rivers has been up and down, but his last game at home against the jaguars he tossed four touchdowns.
