A second game action gallery from the New Orleans Saints' win over the Carolina Panthers in week 17 of the 2019 NFL season.

For the third consecutive season, the Saints will close out the regular season with a trip to Bank of America Stadium to play the Panthers (12:00 p.m. CST). 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 the third 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.
