CHARLOTTE, N.C. (WGNO) — The New Orleans Saints (1-1) fall miserably 26-7 to the Carolina Panthers (2-0) at Bank of American Stadium in Week 2 of the 2021 season.

The Saints were without eight assistant coaches on the sideline, due to positive COVID-19 tests.

Kwon Alexander (elbow), Marcus Davenport (shoulder), Chase Hansen (groin), Erik McCoy (calf) and Pete Werner (hamstring) were also ruled OUT.

The Saints were coming off of a dominant 38-3 win over the Packers, while the NFC South rival Panthers defeated the Jets, 19-14 in quarterback Sam Darnold’s first game with the franchise.
