At the end of the day, the Saints are simply a better team.
Both defenses have their issues. There’s no debating that. Overall the Saints have a better offense. The passing of the torch from Brees to Ryan has not happened yet, and it certainly won’t start on Sunday.
Until that happens, the Saints have the better team.
