Okay, it may be playoff time. But I’m still starting the Saints defense.
There’s actually reason for optimism this week. The Saints defense looks significantly improved every week, and Carson Palmer has not been sharp this year. He reads the field badly, misses throws, turns the ball over.
The only real threat here is David Johson. But that is one hell of a threat. And without Vaccaro and possibly Craig Robertson, it’s going to be hard for the Saints to shut him down.
But the Cardinals are also without Michael Floyd now. If they can make that offense one-dimensional, it should be a good week.
So I’m sticking to my guns.
