CHARLOTTE Stitched Torrey Smith Jersey , N.C. (AP) — Eric Reid says he’s being targeted by the NFL because of his pending collusion case after being drug tested five times since signing with the Panthers on Sept. 27.Drug screenings throughout the NFL are random, but the Panthers safety says this year for him it has been “excessive.” He says in a normal 17-week season he’s tested “maybe twice.”Reid believes the extra tests are related to fallout from his collusion case against the NFL which alleges owners conspired to keep him out of the league because of his decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice.Reid says “this doesn’t surprise me coming from them.”The safety says he doesn’t have anything to hide since he’s never failed a drug test, but added it needs to be talked about because “it’s like stop-and-frisk — it’s just wrong.” The Saints have home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs just about locked up.After beating the Panthers on Monday night Youth David Mayo Jersey , the Saints only have to win one of their last two games (both at home, against the Steelers and Panthers) to clinch home-field advantage. The Rams and Bears still have an outside chance of catching the Saints for No. 1 in the conference, but more likely the two are competing with each other for the No. 2 seed.Here’s how the playoff picture looks after Monday night:1. Saints (12-2): May end up resting their starters in Week 17.2. Rams (11-3): Two losses in a row at the wrong time.3. Bears (10-4): Clinched the NFC North.4. Cowboys (8-6): Their NFC East lead narrowed by a game.5. Seahawks (8-6): Sunday’s loss to the 49ers kept them from clinching.6. Vikings (7-6-1): Put together their best game of the season on Sunday.7. Eagles (7-7): The defending champs are not going down without a fight.8. Washington (7-7): Still in the hunt Stitched David Mayo Jersey , in both the NFC East and the wild card race.9. Panthers (6-8): Technically not eliminated from playoff contention, but at this point it’s about a 1,000-to-1 shot.
