The New Orleans Saints will look for a rebound when they travel to take on the Carolina Panthers in Week 3 of the NFL season.

While the Saints are coming off a deflating 20-10 loss to the Buccaneers while the Panthers remain winless following a 19-16 loss to the Giants.

While fans are concerned about the health of Jameis Winston following a rough outing, there's even less certainty about the quarterback position with Baker Mayfield struggling early.

The former Browns QB is completing just 53.6 percent of his passes through two games - a significant drop off from his 61.6 clip during his time in Cleveland.

The Panthers have lost their two games by a total of five points, so they've been competitive in each of their two defeats.

As for the Saints, they're just trying to achieve better than intermittent success on offense.
