Jim Henderson's Black & Gold Breakdown: Saints vs. Panthers

Jim Henderson's Black & Gold Breakdown: Saints vs. Panthers

As we enter the home stretch of this oddest season in the Saints' recent history, who would have thought that:

-The Saints would be trying to snap a home losing streak before going back on the road a week from Monday trying to extend their winning streak as visitors.

Of course, the Saints can put an end to that silliness by extending the Panthers' losing streak to seven games, and there are any number of reasons to think that they will.

-Cam Newton's season-long funk playing behind an anonymous offensive line and saddled with a crop of wide receivers that boasts Kelvin Benjamin and little else.

The Saints have a great opportunity to take over sole possession of first place in the division with the Falcons traveling to Green Bay on Monday night. Logic tells you they will. But there's been little in this season so far that has been logical, and much that has defied it.
