Heading into this season, here is a preview of the opponents the New Orleans Saints will face in 2020, continuing with the Denver Broncos.
The New Orleans Saints have a chip on their shoulder going into 2020 after losing in the Wild Card round of the playoffs to the Minnesota Vikings. This season, they are hoping that the outcome will be a little different.
Here is a look at their Week 12 opponent after looking at their Week 11 opponent, the Atlanta Falcons.
2019 Season in Review
Like the Falcons, New Orleans’ Week 11 opponent, the Denver Broncos finished with a 7-9 record over their regulars season and that is where it ended. However, their seven wins did not come against opponents that are talented.
Their best win last year was the Tennessee Titans. Other than that, there were no quality wins. They did play Green Bay and Kansas City, but they lost both. New Orleans finished with a 13-3 record and a loss in the Wild Card round of the playoffs.

2020 Offseason Wrap-Up
New Orleans had a stellar offseason with a handful of excellent additions making their team stronger and better all around. The Broncos, similarly, saw additions and departures themselves during this offseason.
They decided to go with Drew Lock as their starter cutting Joe Flacco. They also traded for A.J. Bouye after losing Chris Harris. They had a great draft too, drafting Jerry Jeudy, KJ Hamler, and Lloyd Cushenberry.
2020 Matchup Preview
The Denver Broncos and the Saints have not played each other since 2016. Back then, Peyton Manning beat Drew Brees 25-17. New Orleans will be heading into Denver for this game, but the outcome will still be the same.
New Orleans should take this game handily. I would be surprised if this game, even at Denver, is ever closer than 0-0 when it started. The Saints trot along through the midpoint of the season with an undefeated record.
