Panthers at Saints in Week 14 flexed to Sunday night
The NFC South will be on display in primetime in Week 14. The NFL announced on Sunday that the Panthers and Saints have been flexed to 'Sunday Night Football' on Dec. 8.
The Saints and Panthers will replace the originally scheduled Sunday night game of Atlanta at Green Bay. The Falcons and Packers will now kickoff at 1 p.m. ET on Dec. 8. With the Falcons at 2-9 and tied for the worst record in the NFL, giving them the boot from Sunday Night Football obviously made sense.
If you feel like the Saints are in primetime every week, you're not that far off. The Dec. 8 game against the Panthers will mark the Saints fourth nationally televeised game in five weeks. New Orleans beat the Cowboys on Sunday Night Football in Week 10, then followed that up with a win over Atlanta on Thursday night in Week 12. In Week 13, the Saints will travel to Seattle for a Monday night game before hosting the Panthers on Sunday night in Week 14. New Orleans also played on
The Week 14 game between Carolina and New Orleans will be the first of two meetings between the two teams this season. The Panthers and Saints will also meet again in Carolina on Dec. 22. New Orleans (9-2) currently holds a one-game lead over Carolina (8-3) in the NFC South.
