As the Saints take on the Panthers on Monday night, the Geaux Black and Gold Team released their keys to the game.
First, the offense needs to execute. They were finally able to bring back the urgency against Tampa Bay in the second half. They just need to keep their foot on the gas.
Second, the Offensive Line needs to bring their A game to shut out Luke Kuechly. He ranks fourth in the league in tackles.
Finally, the Saints defense needs to shut out Christian McCaffrey. He’s more of a threat this year than last. In their final game against Carolina last year, the Saints held McCaffrey to 16 rushing yards. He only averaged 27 per game in 2017. But this year, he’s averaging 71 yards per game on the ground.
