New Orleans will host Carolina (12:00 CDT) with new head coach Matt Rhule and new quarterback Teddy Bridgewater in their second divisional game of the season. In the offseason, the Panthers signed QB Teddy Bridgewater, who played for New Orleans from 2018-19 and went 5-0 as a starter last season during a five-game stretch when Brees was sidelined with a right thumb injury. Bridgewater will face off against the Saints for only the second time in his career. Bridgewater saw his first NFL action against the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in Week Three of 2014 when he came on in relief of Matt Cassel.
