Head coach Bill Belichick of the New England Patriots looks on against the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome on September 17, 2017 in New Orleans, Louisiana. The Patriots are 6-0 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, 13-5-2 ATS in their last 20 home games and 20-8 ATS in their last 28 games overall.
Still, Carolina suffered an embarrassing defeat at the hands of New Orleans last week. And that challenge may be even more daunting for the Panthers' defense on the road against a Tom Brady-led offense.
Well, of course they have a shot.
"I could be instinctive like "he's coming your way, I've got to stop him" but not just yet because - especially in the field of play - even I forget where the line of scrimmage is", said Rowe. "I wouldn't say I don't believe in (momentum), but the rule is you've got 24 hours to think about it and now it's on to the next". They keep settling for field goals instead of touchdowns.
Last week, Drew Brees chewed up and spat out the Panthers defense. And here comes Brady. "But at the same time, just giving people - not just for the city I play for and the teams that I played for before, but just people all around the world, just to be able to give them hope and courage to be able to fulfill their dreams".
Jourdan: You make some great points, although you're a bit of a downer. "So you know what I do is I stay back long enough till i know for sure he's past because if I drop my coverage and he throws it over me, that's on me".
Benjamin Mendy ruptures knee ligament, to undergo surgery

"I just think it's a matter of time", Rivera said. The Panthers defense would answer, forcing a punt after an initial conversion on a Brandin Cooks 16-yard completion. Falling for the quick count. "If they can run the ball, then he's going to be play-action and all that stuff". The cornerbacks and safeties not being in position.
Will Carolina's Offense Show Up?Panthers QB Cam Newton passed for 209 yards and three TDs in last meeting.
This is a vulnerable Patriots defense. Once the Panthers are 10 points behind, they will start to panic.
It's a very short list of National Football League quarterbacks who have won MVP this century, and they all look (and sound) like all-time greats. "That's one of the things that we're working on, being a more consistent bunch". They're OK with the drives, they're not good at finishing drives.
And Newton said he doesn't feel like it's too late, although nearly every other team staged some sort of protest on Sunday, because the subject of protest is ongoing in the country. To see what we should do with him, we have to find out whether he can regain his old form. But I don't see it. This should be a statement win for the Patriots. Carolina's team leaders met Tuesday at the home of Panthers owner Jerry Richardson, where they received assurances that he would support players who chose to protest.
