The Saints and quarterback Jameis Winston looked great last Sunday. This week, not.
After the 23-7 Carolina win over New Orleans, Panthers pass-rusher Haason Reddick explained the approach to shutting down Winston and the Saints.
“Just simply to get after him,” Reddick told PFT by phone. “Pressure him and like I said, just get after him. Try to get him off his star spot. Affect him. We knew that he was a big part of what they did last week and we knew if we could affect him this week that we could have a good chance at winning the game.”
I asked Reddick whether the plan included trying to get Winston to attempt to do too much, in the hopes that he’d rewind the clock to his 30-interception season of 2019.
