Not only did they defeat the Panthers twice, they did it decisively both times. Even for players who weren't on the team's last injury report, the bye week carried plenty of value.
When New Orleans topped Carolina by 10 in the dome in Week 13, it ended a Panthers four-game winning streak and was one of only two losses in Carolina's past nine games.

But at the same time, they may be doing some different things that we have to get ready for to go out and stop.
