New Orleans Saints vs. Arizona Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 4 months 1 week ago
The Saints are plummeting toward their third straight non-winning season. They have dropped four of their last five games. While the defense improved in keeping opponents at 28 or fewer points per game in the last eight, the offense has been limited to 23 or fewer in six of those contests. New Orleans trails Atlanta and Tampa Bay in the NFC South by three games and has lost to both already....

New Orleans Saints vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 4 months 2 weeks ago
New Orleans enters Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay with its playoff aspirations on life support. The Saints’ offense sputtered, managing just 13 points in last week’s loss at home to Detroit. The Lions also put an end to Drew Brees’ streak of throwing a touchdown pass at home at 60 games, an NFL record. It was the first time he had failed to do so since Oct. 4, 2009....

Detroit Lions vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 4 months 3 weeks ago
On Thanksgiving Day, Detroit (7-4) pulled out yet another come-from-behind victory to grab first place in the NFC North. The Lions have won six of their last seven and every game this season has been decided by seven points or less.   This past Sunday, after a competitive and high-scoring first half against Los Angeles, New Orleans’ (5-6) defense shut out the Rams. Drew Brees and...

New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 5 months 1 week ago
New Orleans enters Thursday night's game following a crushing defeat at home. Victory seemed nearly secured following Drew Brees’ 32-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks to tie the score with less than a minute and a half remaining. But instead of successfully kicking the extra point to go ahead, Justin Simmons jumped over the center to block it. Will Parks scooped it up for the...

Denver Broncos vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 5 months 2 weeks ago
Denver cruised out of the starting blocks of this season to 4-0. Then the Broncos hit some bumps in the road in their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They have dropped three of their last five games. More disconcerting is that two of their losses occurred within the AFC West, the division that they have won each of the past five seasons.   New Orleans has turned around its season...

New Orleans Saints vs. San Francisco 49ers Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 5 months 3 weeks ago
The Saints (3-4) march into this contest, having won three of their last four games.  All four of those contests had close finishes. They have won or lost every game this season except for one by six points or fewer.   In contrast, the 49ers (2-6) are nose-diving toward one of the first picks in the next NFL draft. After shutting out the Rams in the season opener, they find...

Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 6 months 2 days ago
Seattle travels to New Orleans to face the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time since 2010. If someone had not watched the Seahawks' previous game but only saw the final score, bewildered reactions must certainly have resulted. One might have assumed that had it taken place after the venue and participants had been teleported back to the era of leather helmets and a...

New Orleans Saints vs. Kansas City Chiefs Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 6 months 1 week ago
New Orleans enters this game on a two-game winning streak after starting 0-3. Kansas City has alternated winning and losing from week to week.  Both won divisional games last week, as the Saints outlasted the Panthers 41-38 at home and the Chiefs beat the Raiders 26-10 on the road. And even though both teams currently sit in third place in their respective divisions, each remains within...

Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 6 months 2 weeks ago
Defending NFC champion Carolina limps into the Mercedes-Benz Superdome seeking its first victory in a month. The Panthers, who have won the NFC South each of the past three seasons, look nothing like the steamroller they were in 2015 en route to a 14-0 start. Carolina has lost three games in a row, the last two coming against divisional foes Atlanta and Tampa Bay.   New Orleans enters...

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings Preview and Prediction

By Bryan Fischer, 6 months 3 weeks ago
Most of the “Monday Night Football” matchups this season have left a little something to be desired but rounding out Week 4 is one of the more intriguing games on the schedule between a pair of potential NFC title contenders. The two teams are both in the upper third of the league and in line to make a run at their respective divisions so it will be a nice test of just how good...
