All three Saints WRs score touchdowns

It hasn’t happened all year, but it feels inevitable. With the wild talent of this Saints receiver group, it’s only a matter of time before Brees finds each of them in the end-zone.

That’s not to say that the Rams CBs are slouches, by any means. They have some talent in their secondary. But if the Saints choose to avoid Aaron Donald by attacking L.A. through the air, each receiver should have their shot at scoring.

We all know that they’re all capable of winning their matchups. Cooks is the dangerous deep threat, Michael Thomas is unjammable, and Willie Snead, the jack-of-all-trades, is one of the most effective slot receivers in the league.

With the Saints’ tendency to spread the ball, it’s hard to predict who will get the touches. It could very well be Fleener’s day, or any of the backs. Even Cadet could get his touches against this stout front-seven. But I’m calling it for the receivers. Big day for Brees and this Saints offense.
