Let’s take a little inventory. The New Orleans Saints have a future Pro Football Hall of Fame inductee at quarterback. Their head coach is also a potential enshrinee in Canton, and he’s one of the greatest offensive minds the game has ever seen. Their best wide receiver’s statistics are better than all of the Eagles wide receiver’s combined. Alvin Kamara is a monster at running back, and that’s just what the Saints make you deal with on offense.
Throw out the game versus the Atlanta Falcons. That was an aberration. New Orleans will be a factor from now until we’re deep in the playoff conversation.
