The New Orleans Saints and Washington Football Team face off in a Week NFL showdown at FedEx Field. The last time these two teams faced off in 2018, the Saints won 43-19. 

The Saints currently sit with a 2-2 record but they have been one of the most inconsistent teams in the NFL. This is a team that had a dominating Week 1 victory over the Green Bay Packers but are also coming off a loss against the New York Giants in the last game. The Saints were leading heading into the 4th quarter, but they were outscored 11-7, and that led to the defeat. New Orleans on the season is averaging 23.5 points while the defense is giving up 17.2 points. Jameis Winston has thrown for 613 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions. Running back Alvin Kamara is also having a big season rushing for 297 yards, eight touchdowns, and two interceptions. 

On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Football Team who also sit with a 2-2 record, including a victory over their last game against the Atlanta Falcons. The offense was elite, scoring 34 points. Taylor Heinicke completed 22 of his 33 passes for 290 yards and three touchdowns. Washington is averaging 25.2 points while the defense is giving up 30.5 points per game. Heinicke on the season has completed 69.5 percent of his passes for 960 yards, eight touchdowns, and three interceptions. The best running back has been Antonio Gibson and he has rushed for 253 yards and a touchdown. 

Saints are 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 games overall. The Washington Football Team is 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games in October. The Saints are 1-6 against the spread in the last seven meetings. The over is 6-0 in the last six meetings. 

The Saints have been too inconsistent, and I don't trust them laying a number, especially on the road. I expect another big game from Heinicke, much like he did in the last game against the Falcons. Washington is going to cover the spread, and I am also throwing a few dollars on the money line.
