Tonight's Monday Night Football matchup is a classic NFC South rivalry tilt between the New Orleans Saints and Carolina Panthers. Both teams have plenty at stake.

For the Saints, a win tonight would make them 12-2 on the season and put them in the driver's seat for the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. Meanwhile, the Panthers (6-7) need a win to stay in the wild card hunt.

Amazingly, these two division rivals haven't played yet this season. They'll meet tonight and in the finale in Week 17.

Who has the advantage tonight? ESPN has unveiled its prediction.

Despite the Saints being on the road, the FPI gives them a 66 percent chance of winning against Carolina.

ESPN FPI prediction for Panthers-Saints.

You can catch Panthers-Saints at 8:15 p.m. ET tonight.

ESPN will broadcast the game.
