It’s time for the Saints to spring back into action this week. This Sunday, in the Superdome, they get to take their shot at the Detroit Lions.

The Lions are coming off a tough loss against Carolina 27-24 in Week 5. And, the New Orleans Saints are really starting to come together as a team. After two huge wins on the road, they are looking like the antithesis of their first two games.

In my opinion, there are going to be five key components to watch for this Sunday. Who Dat Dish has broken down these five areas, to see who has the advantage in each. Both of these teams are very evenly matched. That being said, the winner of the game will be looking to build on their strengths.

The Lions have won the last three in a row in this series. But this Saints team is totally different from the last three times they’ve met. Each category will gauge an advantage to either the Lions or the Saints in no particular order.
