Great game! Who's ready for the Sunday night game in the NO #iwillbetheresuitedandbooted #biggame #PantherNationJohnson is Carolina's leading pass rusher and Sunday's game represents their biggest challenge so far defensively, Drew Brees and an angry Saints offense fresh off a slaughter in Seattle.

The Panthers would probably need to beat the Saints both times to win the NFC South, but the first one up, in the Superdome, is arguably the biggest game of the Panthers' season. They enter New Orleans on an eight-game winning streak.
It doesn't seem like there's any way Johnson will miss this one, but it would be presumptuous to assume anything before we see how Johnson is able to participate in practice this week.
