The Undefeated Ain'ts

Panthers fans have got to be pleased with the results of Monday Night Football last night. New Orleans destroyed Atlanta, 23-3. If we can win on Sunday, that will put us in a 3-way labyrinthine tie for first in the NFC South.

A win will not be easy, though. We all knew the Saints offense was high-powered, but their defense put on a show last night. They were able to do something that the Panthers couldn't do - stop Warrick Dunn and Michael Vick. The Dirty Birds never put the ball in the end zone. Jake, Keyshawn, Steve, DeAngelo, DeShaun, and the O-line better take note.

Despite the perceived strength of New Orleans, the Panthers have one statistic working in their favor: teams lose the Sunday after a Monday night game more often than they win. Let's hope the trend continues.
