The New Orleans Saints are coming out of the bye week against the dismal NFC South rival — Atlanta Falcons — here is your gameday guide.
This should be a pretty easy one for the boys from Who Dat Nation. The Falcons currently sit at the bottom of the NFC South at 1-7, a division led by the New Orleans Saints at 7-1.
They have already begun looking towards next year, fortunately for us, this should be an easy win. So much so that we should see Teddy Bridgewater, Latavius Murray, and Tre’Quan Smith take over for Brees, Kamara, and Thomas in the fourth.
Here is a look in at the New Orleans Saints Thursday injury report:
Jared Cook – ankle – full participant
Tre’Quan Smith – ankle – full participant
Drew Brees – thumb – full participant
Alvin Kamara – knee/ankle – full participant
Josh Hill – calf – limited participant
Patrick Robinson – hamstring – limited participant
There is no news greater to a Saints fan right now than to see Brees and Kamara as full participants as well as Cook and Smith.
With the roster getting back to full health, the Saints’ team should be gearing up to slaughter teams in the near future, potentially as early as Week 10 against the Atlanta Falcons.
Here are the facts you should know about the Saints’ Week 10 game.
Date and Time: November 10, 2019, at 1:00 PM ET
Opponent: Atlanta Falcons (1-7)
Location: Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans, Louisiana
ESPN Power Index: Saints 77.0%, Falcons 22.8%, .2% tie I suppose
With the New Orleans Saints almost in complete control of the NFC South, this game should be nothing more than a speed bump on the way to 8-1. I would suspect that Brees will throw for multiple touchdowns and that Kamara will run for at least one.
Expect Latavius Murray to play a big role in the upcoming game as well as try to limit involvement from Kamara as they should have the game firmly in control. Look also for Tre’Quan Smith to get a good chunk of snaps in his first game back.
I predict the New Orleans Saints to beat the Atlanta Falcons by at least 17 points and total score to go over 51. Let’s go with 35-17.
