New Orleans Saints Week 5 Pregame: Divisional Road-trip to Charlotte
 
New Orleans Saints fans everywhere, whatever you do this week, do not, I repeat, “DO NOT!!!” put money on your team to cover the points in Vegas against Cam Newton and the Carolina Panthers this Sunday in Charlotte! Since Carolina came into the league in 1995, this has grown to become one of the more heated rivalries in the entire NFL, at least in my own personal opinion as a lifelong Saints fan from the very beginning.

After splitting the series evenly in 1995 at 1-1, Carolina jumped out to a quick lead over the Saints that next year in 1996 and held onto the lead through 1999 until 2000, when New Orleans tied it up again 6-6 by sweeping the Panthers for the first time ever that same year. The Saints would then take the lead for the first time ever in the series in 2001 by sweeping the Panthers for the second straight season in a row. They would only hold that lead for 2 short years as Carolina would sweep New Orleans for their second time ever, since they did it the first time in ’96, and tie the series up again 9-9 in 2003. The Saints tied it back up again by the end of the next season in 2004 10-10. Carolina kept the series tied the next year in 2005 11-11 by beating the Saints in Baton Rouge on December 4 during the season of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.

It fails to mention that since Carolina is traditionally (it seems at least) our last opponent of the regular season, two of their wins against us in 2006 and 2009 were against the 2nd and 3rd stringers since we already had the division and a 1st round bye sewn up. So I have to consider the series tied, since their two game lead comes from concessions.

And, although I hope we blow them out of the water and beat them by 50, it would be rather sweet if we won the game on a last second 50 yard FG by Kasay. >:)
