The top five team statistics to watch for Sunday: Saints vs. Raiders
4 of 7
The offensive line will have all eyes on it Sunday. An argument can be made that this one thing might be the most important. Drew Brees cannot afford to get hit and dropped this Sunday. In order for the Saints to get their offense going, the big men upfront must protect Brees. First quarter will be important to set the tone for the game. Brees will also have to be a little nimble as well. He’s done it before. The Saints will ask him again to dodge the rush. Awareness is one of his strengths. Brees will need to have that third eye wide open much of the game.
