The Saints intercept Winston twice.
You heard it here first, folks. Two interceptions for the black and gold this Sunday.
Predictions like this are a bit silly, it’s true. There’s no way of accurately predicting turnovers, despite what statistics say. But we’re being brave here, so why not.
Like I said, I expect the Saints to bring plenty of pressure on Winston. It’s their M.O. generally: disguised coverages and blitz packages, designed to force turnovers. Well, generally the Saints have come up short in the INT department. They have a few missed opportunities last week, and I expect they’ll have another shot on Sunday.
I’m going to go way out on a limb here and say, Jairus Byrd is going to get a pick. Again, you heard it here first. The high-profile safety has played very well of late, leaving the Saints in a difficult position with regards his contract. And an INT would go a long way in securing a future here in New Orleans.
Beyond Byrd, I’m going to say… Nate Stupar. INT. Why not? We’re making brave predictions here, and Stupar flashes some athleticism at times. You could even say that he’s “sneaky athletic”.
