Games 9-12:

Week ten features a rematch of one of the best games in 2019, the Saints vs the 49ers. The Saints will be at home for this one as playoff positioning will likely begin to take effect.

The 49ers will likely still be the top in their division and it could be yet another high scoring game. Emmanuel Sanders will look to put up big numbers against his former team and I think the Saints will win this one 45-38.

Week eleven features one of the Saints’ most physical games every season as they play host to the Atlanta Falcons. Games between the Saints and Falcons are always close, but the Saints have won three of the last four. I’m giving the Saints the advantage at home with a 26-19 victory.

Week 12 has New Orleans traveling to Mile High Stadium in Denver for a matchup against the Broncos. The Broncos are a very young team, but they do have some serious talent on both sides of the ball. Von Miller will be anchoring down the defense while Drew Lock and Courtland Sutton look to make plays on offense.

Playing at Mile High Stadium is never easy either, especially if you’re not used to dealing with the altitude change and shortness of breath. Despite all that, I still think the Saints will win this one in a defensive battle, 14-12.

Week 13 has the Saints traveling to Atlanta this time for a rematch from just two weeks prior. The Falcons will be seeking revenge from their week eleven loss and will come out firing on all cylinders. Matt Ryan will put up good numbers and Drew Brees will likely have his one rough game against Atlanta.

I think the Falcons will win this one 36-15.
