5 toughest QB matchups for the New Orleans Saints in 2020
Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers
Green Bay Packers’ future Hall-of-Fame quarterback comes in at No. 2. Over the course of the last couple of years, Rodgers has solidified himself as a top quarterback, not only in the NFC but in the entire NFL.
Rodgers was also the quarterback who beat out Drew Brees for the No. 2 seed in the playoffs last year. There still has to be some sting to the Saints’ fans hearing that. This year will be a different story though.
Since 2008, Rodgers has been to the Pro Bowl 8 times including the last two years consecutively. He has also been a first-team all-pro selection twice. It looks like his accolades speak for themselves — it gets better.
Rodgers has one of the best touchdowns to interception ratios in the NFL. He hasn’t thrown double-digit interceptions in a single season since 2010. To put that into perspective, Brees has thrown seven double-digit interceptions seasons in the same time frame.
It is hard to find a quarterback with that few turnovers in that amount of time. That is the reason Rodgers comes in at No. 2, and now, for the No. 1 quarterback the New Orleans Saints will face this season.
