New Orleans intercepts Goff twice

If the Saints choose to bring consistent pressure on Goff, they’ll do so to try to force him into hurried throws. As Craig Robertson said about the matchup, the Saints will come prepared for the type of reads that Goff tends to go to under pressure. Expect plenty of robber concepts and disguised, underneath zones.

It’ll be primarily on Robertson and the other LBs to make these plays on the ball. They’ve shown the ability to come away with INTs in recent weeks, and will have plenty of opportunities against the rookie QB. And if the Saints can get a big lead, L.A. will be forced to go to Goff early and often.
