I like the Saints and what they’ve done and hope they get it together for what could end up being Drew Brees’ last kick at the can this season. However, New Orleans is EXTREMELY banged up right now, without Michael Thomas and Jared Cook, two of the more prominent receivers in New Orleans’ aerial attack, and there’s only so much Alvin Kamara can do out of the backfield. Not having that go-to- receiver has proven to make life difficult and uncomfortable for Brees to begin with. The Saints are also missing defensive pieces like Marshon Lattimore and while the Lions haven’t been great, there are enough pieces to compete here and I think the Lions get up for this one and it’s a field goal game at most for the Saints if the Lions don’t win this outright. I’ll take the Lions and the points in this one.
