Reggie Bush to lead 'Who Dat' chant at Saints vs. Panthers game

The Carolina Panthers will battle the New Orleans Saints in the Wild Card round of the postseason. This game could get very ugly, and a shutout isn't completely out of the question.

Carolina announced on Wednesday that the team will wear all-white uniforms on Sunday against the Saints. "It's the playoffs, so that's in the past". We didn't lose our confidence at all. This game will likely go down to the wire, but the Falcons will emerge with a 23-20 win.

The Saints and Panthers have faced off 46 times since 1995 with Carolina holding a 24-22 advantage in the all-time series.

The Panthers bring a solid match up in the trenches to slow down the running game, but head coach Sean Payton has no trouble working in passes and screens to loosen that up. "I think he's smart, he's tough, he blocks for the run, he enjoys competing and quite honestly, he does so many little things well in regards to zone or man that (on) third down or red zone".

Olsen missed nine games with a foot injury this season.

As for the defense, a unit much improved over the previous few seasons, it allowed 83 points in the last four games, the second most (by four points) of any four game stretch of the season. He runs a quick twitch offense and gets rid of the ball as quickly as any passer in the league.

He has just 17 catches for 191 yards and one touchdown this season, and had only one reception in Carolina's loss to Atlanta last week.

"Him and Cam have timing together, chemistry", Saints safety Vonn Bell said.

And that doesn't even include the injuries which kept three-time Pro Bowl tight Greg Olsen and two-time All-Pro center Ryan Kalil out of most of the season. "He knows how to use his body" to keep defenders from getting to the ball in flight.

There were some common threads in the Saints' two regular-season victories over Carolina. Two Super Bowl quarterbacks and teams of recent years, and two tendencies that could decide the outcome in the Superdome, where the Saints are 4-0 in the playoffs behind Brees. The Falcons are fourth in net yards per play while LA is eighth, first in third-down conversion percentage while the Rams are ninth and third in first downs per play while LA is 12th. The over/under for the game is 48 total points.

Add in his 826 receiving yards on 81 receptions and 13 total touchdowns, and it's easy to see why he leads the race for offensive rookie of the year. Several other regulars practiced on a limited basis, including leading receiver Michael Thomas (hamstring), guard Senio Kelemete (knee), tight end Josh Hill (shoulder) and special teams regular Justin Hardee.
