CAROLINA PANTHERS PREVIEW

Can Matt Moore get the ball to an injury prone Steve Smith? If not, then everyone keys on Deangelo Williams and Jonathan Stewart and it's game over. Can the defense make up for the loss of Julius Peppers? Yes, because he had a habit of disappearing in big games anyway. 

I'm not sold on their defense. They're not flashy and are fundamentally sound, but not really a big play defense either. Contrast that to the Saints defense with less talent that makes big plays at critical moments. It also seems to suffer from a rash of injuries. They need a playmaker on defense and until they get one they will just be one more functioning defense. PREDICTION: 8-8
