Editor's note: ESPN analyst Ron Jaworski went into his film vault to take a look at the matchup between Jake Delhomme and Aaron Brooks.

Carolina Panthers QB Jake Delhomme and New Orleans Saints QB Aaron Brooks are a win and some help away from a playoff berth and a potential chance to shine in the playoffs.

For Delhomme, this could be a repeat of last year's success when he quarterbacked the Panthers to the Super Bowl. That was when he put himself on the map after backing up Brooks in New Orleans for several seasons.
