New Orleans Saints (4-5) at Carolina Panthers (3-6)
(-3.5) (O/U 52.5)
Carolina had a perfect opportunity to continue turning their season around last week. After starting the year 1-5. they had won two in a row and looked to extend that to 3 while leading the Chiefs 17-3 in the 4th quarter.

The NFC South, which includes New Orleans Saints, the Carolina Panthers, Atlanta Falcons, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Atlanta enters 2015 without head coach Mike Smith for the first time since 2008 after back to back losing records of 4-12 in 2013 and 6-10 in 2014, to go along with an unimpressive 1-4 overall playoff record.

His second year with Seattle wasn’t too bad either as his defense would again lead the league in fewest yards and points allowed. No doubt he was hired by Atlanta as head coach to try to fix a defense that was the worst in the league last year in yards allowed.
