Week 9: at Carolina Panthers

Mark and Joe say: Good matchup. This should be a fun NFC South shootout between two rivals, though neither team has been at their best for the majority of the season. Drew Brees tore up the Packers' secondary on Sunday Night Football, with 27/32 for 311 yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions (with two sacks taken for -9 yards). Jimmy Graham was able to partially participate, and posted six targets for 5/59/1, following top receiver Brandin Cooks (seven for 6/94/1). Young gun Kenny Stills amassed four targets for 4/57/0 receiving, followed by Marques Colston (five for 4/49/0). TD machine Josh Hill (one target for 1/2/1 receiving) handled the other TD for Brees - Hill has seen 9/122/3 receiving this season as an occasional contributor. The Panthers' pass D is ranked 18th in the NFL averaging 243.2 net passing yards allowed per game, with 16 passing scores given out vs. eight interceptions (tied for seventh in the NFL) and 16 sacks (17th in the NFL) generated to date. This is a mediocre unit across the board, as you can see. Last week, Russell Wilson threw 20/32 for 191 net yards, one TD and one interception against the Panthers' secondary (one sack taken for -8 yards); two weeks ago Aaron Rodgers rang up 19/24 for 241 net yards, three TDs and zero interceptions, with two sacks taken for -14 yards. This looks like a good matchup for the visiting Saints, although the team collectively seems to have trouble with their focus and intensity away from their adoring fans in the Big Easy. Brees in particular has been not-as-impressive in away games.

Recent Game Summaries

2014 Week 7 vs DET (10 / 6 / 111 / 0 rec)

Colston was Brees' primary target in the middle of the field, as Brees looked his way early and often. After dropping what would have been a fairly tough catch on the first possession of the game, Colston was able to haul in each of his next six targets with each going for first downs. Colston was consistently able to get open down the seam and across the middle. He hauled in five big gains of 21, 18, 22, 19 and 23 yards from his slot position to put together a big receiving day.

2014 Week 8 vs GB (5 / 4 / 49 / 0 rec)

Colston was solid as he made a few strong contested catches against coverage but again had a bad drop early in the game. With Graham back and the offense focused on running the ball, there weren't many opportunities for Colston to make an impact
