The New Orleans Saints will travel to Los Angeles in what’ll be a highly anticipated rematch of the 2018 NFC Championship game.

We all know what happened to the New Orleans Saints last season. They were unfairly officiated in what would change the NFL’s challenging abilities as we know it. Because of that NFC Championship game, teams can now challenge pass interference.

The Saints could’ve and arguably should’ve won it despite that penalty. After all, the Saints, who received the ball first in overtime, just needed to drive and score, instead, Brees was intercepted strong safety John Johnson.

They had a chance to win the game, and with both teams bringing back the bulk of their roster, this game could potentially be one of the most competitive of the season. However, for Saints fans, it’d take an absolute thriller to beat out the team’s home opening win against the Texans.

This offseason, the Saints arguably got even better. After cruising through the NFC last season, the Saints added Jared Cook to their roster after he had a career-year in Oakland. However, they did lose Mark Ingram, who the team used frequently in place of Alvin Kamara.

As we enter Week 2, both the Rams and Saints are undefeated, so one of the two NFC beasts will be losing their first game on Sunday. In Week 1, the Saints defeated Houston 30-28 in a game that featured two lead changes in the last 55 seconds. The Rams took down the Panthers in a nail-biter as well, winning 30-27.

That said, let’s dive into three players that’ll have a huge impact on the scoreline in the Rams-Saints rematch.
