New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 6 months 4 weeks ago
Despite the Saints’ two-game winning streak, their slim hopes for a wild card spot died before last week’s kickoff of their eventual home victory over Tampa Bay. Instead, New Orleans will spend the first day of 2017 trying to deny its archrivals a bye in the first round of the postseason. The Saints also can finish at .500 with a win in Atlanta.   The Falcons are on a three-...

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 7 months 6 days ago
Despite New Orleans’ victory in Arizona last Sunday, Atlanta’s victory over San Francisco ended the Saints hopes of winning the NFC South. They still have a mathematical shot a wild card, but need to win their final two games and hope the Redskins, Packers and Buccaneers all lose in Weeks 16 and 17.   Speaking of Tampa Bay, Sunday night’s 26-20 loss in Dallas ended the...

New Orleans Saints vs. Arizona Cardinals Preview and Prediction

By John La Fleur, 7 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, 7 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, 7 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, 8 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, 8 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, 8 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...
