COACH: Kevin Maloney (10-14)


New Orleans Coach Kevin Maloney has his hands full against the Carolina Panthers tonight. This last week of electric football in the Long Island Electric Football League is filled with division rivalries. The New Orleans Saints had another disappointing year this season and they're going to finish against the Carolina Panthers, who have immersed out of the NFC South as one tough team. Anything can happen in this division rival game so expect fireworks because trying to stop Reggie Bush in big games like this probably won't happen, but since the Panthers have the advantage at home the fireworks should begin early as they prepare for the playoffs. The Panthers could win their division once again for the third straight year!

Bush seems to be the only bright light on this Saints team after failing the past four seasons to qualify.  He is ranked #9 in the NFC with 52 carries for 1154 all-purpose yards with six touchdowns for the Saints. The last playoff game they were in was in 2008, when they lost 24-21 to the New York Giants in the Wild Card Game.

COACH: Matt Zoo-York McQueen (12-14)


The Panthers are fighters and they back it up! They've had an extremely challenging schedule, losing to the Green Bay Packers 10-7 at Green Bay this season. Last season Carolina beat Green Bay in the NFC Divisional Game 42-20! We can expect to see the Panthers rise again tonight with powerhouse running back DeShaun Foster running the ball. This team is a team that is on the money and capable of winning it all. They have a great special teams with Greg Jones, who is outstanding at setting up Foster's running game, and their defense is tough. Foster is #2 in the NFC in rushing with 37 carries for 439 yards with eight touchdowns! 




November 23, 2020. Charlotte, North Carolina. On the opening kickoff Carolina running back Greg Jones exploded 51 yards to the New Orleans 49-yard line. It only took one play for Panthers running back DeShaun Foster to run 49 yards into the end zone for the touchdown to make the score 7-0, with 12:53 left to go in the first half. The Panthers strike first and make a statement! The Panthers are on fire in this hard-hitting, action-packed game! There will be no mercy for the New Orleans Saints, that's for sure!


On the Saints opening kickoff, Reggie Bush smoked the Panthers with a 63-yard kick return and one play later he ran for a first down 16 yards to the Carolina Panthers 21 yard line as Stan Mc Clover made the tackle. On first down, the Panthers defense came alive and stopped Reggie Bush for a ten yard loss, but on second down Bush ran around the outside of left tackle LIEFL-All-Pro tackle, William Roaf for a 12-yard first down to the Panthers 8-yard line. That is when New Orleans ran into a wall of Carolina defenders. The Saints could not move the football as Reggie Bush was pushed back again on first and second down forcing a third down pass play! The only person open on a third down on a pass from quarterback Drew Brees was Jeremy Shockey who Brees connected with at the 6-yard line, out of first down range for New Orleans and short of the first down. New Orleans kicked the field goal, making the score 7-3, with 47 seconds left in the half as the first half was winding down with Greg Jones taking a weak kick return back for 25 yards.
On first down to begin the second half to DeShaun Foster and company went to work. Foster was stopped behind the line of scrimmage, losing 10 yards to the Saints defense. On second down though, Foster exploded 44 yards downfield to the New Orleans 31 yard line on an amazing play by the Carolina Panthers offensive line. Sometimes we forget that these Panthers have made it to the NFC championship game two straight years, losing both times to the Los Angeles Rams!
On the next set of downs, on first down Jeremy Shockey made a huge play for a 7-yard loss, tackling Foster in the backfield with 11:16 left to go in the game!
On three straight runs the Carolina Panthers were shutdown by New Orleans at the 33-yard line and with fourth down on the way, the Saints were forced to pass with 7:05 left to go in the game. And on fourth down, Carolina quarterback Ryan Tannehill connected with tight end Jeff King for the first down at the 20-yard line as the Panthers continued to kill the clock and control the final outcome of the game, but the Saints defense came up huge again, stuffing the run of the Carolina. The Panthers were forced to pass again on a great pass from Tannenhill to Carolina receiver Keary Colbert for a 24-yard touchdown pass to make the score 14-3, Panthers! Wow!
There was 40 seconds left to go in the game and with no time to get more than one play off, the Saints kick a field goal and hand the game over to the NFC South Division Champion Carolina Panthers, for the third consecutive season as Carolina wins the game 14-6 in a very fast-paced game! We do not know who the Panthers will face in the playoffs and round one, but what a ride it's going to be!
