The New Orleans Saints face a tough task in Week 16 with a rematch against the Carolina Panthers, and coach Sean Payton is surely aware of the risk at hand for his offense.

Drew Brees and the Saints offense found plenty of success, but this time the contest against an elite Panthers defense comes on the road. Payton knows who to watch come Sunday, as he told the team’s official website.

On Charles Johnson and Greg Hardy:

They have very good bursts and quickness and then when you combine that with power the elite rushers have that edge speed, but they also can convert at the power, then you find yourself setting for speed and then having to deal with the transitional rush.  Both of those guys do that extremely well.  When you look at their hurry and sack totals, they come from both of those elements as well as the inside rush.  It is different when you have a guy that does one of those two things, but when they do both of them well like these guys do, then it becomes problematic.”

On

Captain Munnerlyn:

“He is a small instinctive player who has been with them for a while.  He does a lot.  He comes inside and plays the nickel.  He doesn’t leave the field.  He has very good ball skills, very good awareness and when you look at his role within the framework of the defense, he obviously knows the game well and studies well because you can see that on film.”

Make sure to key on these names come Sunday. Payton has surely crafted a gameplan around these three, but that may not prevent them from having a major impact on the outcome of the game.
