Saints can push Panthers’ playoff hopes to brink

NEW ORLEANS (AP) Drew Brees and the Saints were reminded two weeks ago that even the last-place team in the NFC South can take them down.

The Panthers (5-5) got the same reminder last week. So Brees could only presume a sense of urgency pervaded Carolina's preparations for Sunday's visit to New Orleans (8-2) in a matchup of the top two teams in the division.

"You could say it's very similar to the position we were in coming off (the previous) week, where you lose one at home and you didn't play your best football obviously, and there is a lot at stake," Brees said, relating the Saints' home loss to Atlanta in Week 10 to the Panthers' home loss to the Falcons in Week 11.
