What was supposed to be one of the biggest matchups of the season has turned into a game between two teams that have one combined win through three weeks. The Saints are one of two winless teams in the league, while the Packers are 1-2 and tied for last place.
Green Bay is expected to get the victory. They’re favored by 7.5 points. It’s the first time all year the New Orleans is an underdog.
Aaron Rodgers could have his best game of the young season. The reigning MVP has somewhat struggled in his first three games, but New Orleans is one of the worst defensive units in the league. They’ve allowed 34 points per game.
Drew Brees isn’t playing as well as he did in 2011, when he set multiple passing records. The quarterback will face the toughest pass defense in the NFL. Green Bay is allowing just 125.3 yards through the air per contest.
Prediction: The Saints have really been hurt by the loss of Sean Payton. All of their games have been close, but they’ve been beaten by very bad teams. The Packers would be 2-1 if it weren’t for a controversial call at the end of their last game. They’re the better team and should take care of business at home.
Predicted Score: Green Bay 41, New Orleans 23
