3 New Orleans Saints to watch out for on Thanksgiving Day
In the last matchup with the Falcons, the New Orleans Saints offensive line hung Brees’ out to dry giving up six sacks and hit a plethora of times more. With that kind of room and time to throw, there is no wondering why Brees only threw for 287 yards on 45 attempts.
That is an absurd number to throw the ball too.
Drew Brees will be looking to bounce back. Since that game, the Saints offensive line has looked more poised to protect Drew Brees. Nick Easton replaced injured Andrus Peat instead of Will Clapp who gave up most of the sacks in the first game against Atlanta.
If Brees’ has the time and space to throw, his laser accuracy and pinpoint precision will lead to having two receivers over 100 yards receiving.
Drew Brees also never found the endzone against them three weeks ago, yet he threw for three touchdowns in the wins over the Buccaneers and the Panthers in the two weeks since that game.
For the New Orleans Saints to complete their revenge game of the Atlanta Falcons, Drew Brees will have to throw for at least one touchdown. The upside is he also did not throw an interception against the Falcons last time either.
Some bonus players that will need to step up for the Saints to win are the offensive line.
Last time they played the Falcons it was a disgrace. Tre’Quan Smith found yardage against the Buccaneers and the endzone against the Panthers, now he just needs to combine them and have a complete game.
The Saints will beat the Falcons on Thanksgiving Day and almost sweep the NFC South, but they will come out as regular-season champions.
