The Panthers have been successful at keeping the Saints fans from breaking noise records early.
But they haven’t been able to break into the end zone.
A pair of drives have chewed up most of the first quarter, but they had to settle for field goals both times for a 6-0 lead over the Saints.
The Panthers walked in with a plan to run, shorten the game and play field position. So far, it’s working, as the Saints went three-and-out on their first possession.
But you get the sense that’s only sustainable for so long.
