A year ago, number one overall pick from the 2015 NFL draft Jameis Winston was looking for a job. Things didn’t work out at his first stop in Tampa Bay, so he needed a fresh start. The then 26-year old bet on himself and signed a 1-year deal to be a back-up to Drew Brees and play sparingly over the next year. When Brees called it a career over the offseason, Winston knew this was going to be the second chance he was looking for. He beat out Taysom Hill for the starters’ job in the preseason and in week one Winston’s patience and hard work paid off. He threw for 5 touchdowns as he led the Saints to a dominant 38-3 win over Aaron Rodgers’ Packers. 

After the game. Winston credited his predecessor for his approach, "Drew [Brees] always preached, it's about the decision, not the result and sometimes the decision is throwing the ball away, sometimes the decision is running, tucking. Sometimes the decision may be taking a sack." Winston also ran for 37 yards on six carries but avoided tacking a sack. 

Winston and the Saints now travel to Carolina to take on Sam Darnold and the Panthers who are fresh off a 19-16 win over the Jets. The win was a big one not just for the Panthers but specifically for Darnold who was traded away from New York in the offseason, in part so they could draft Zach Wilson.

Darnold only threw one touchdown, compared to Winston’s five, but did post a 102 passer rating in the win. He was helped by Christian McCaffrey who racked up 187 total yards in his return from a shoulder injury suffered in week nine last season.

The Saints are a 3.5-point favorite against the Panthers. The over/under is 44. While Winston is still fairly new to New Orleans, he’s not new to the NFC South. He’s 5-5 all-time against the Panthers with all 10 of his previous starts coming when he was a member of the Bucs.
