Fellow Huddlers,

The day has arrived. Tonight the Panthers have the chance to claim the lead in the race for the NFC South Title.

The vibe down here in New Orleans is very energetic. I talked more crap last night with the locals than any time in recent memory. Expect the home crowd to be rowdy and noisy from the first whistle.

When: 8:20pm

Where: Superdome

On TV: NBC

I will be on the field and tweeting from the sidelines. Follow @Carolinahuddle

Keys to a Panthers Victory:

- Score early. While the crowd will be noisy, they are easily deflated with an early lead.
- Hope for a Deangelo repeat performance. Deangelo usually does well in the Superdome.
- Get Physical with Jimmy Graham. His worst performances have been when physically harassed all game long. It is worth a penalty.
