Panthers go for 4 straight

Posted: Updated:
CHARLOTTE, NC (WBTV) -

When the Carolina Panthers traveled to New Orleans for week 17 last year, they lost big and let Drew Brees break some impressive records.

This year they head to the Superdome on a 3 game win streak, the best they've had all year. Although it may not be the most impressive streak, it certainly helps in momentum against their NFC South rival.

Greg Hardy said he doesn't recall much about that game and wants to focus on now. He's looking to "punish anybody that gets in the way." Tough words from Hardy, similar to those he spoke about Atlanta the last time they came to town.

Last week the Panthers' defense held the Raiders offense to 189 yards, Coach said the key to beating the Saints would revolve around keeping possession of the ball and certainly out of the hands of Brees.

With a win in New Orleans, the Carolina Panthers would finish second in their division, what Coach says would be "a testament to how far the guys have come."
