The New Orleans Saints took down the Buccaneers in Week 1, almost posting 40 points on the Tom Brady-led side. That said, it’s time to move on to Week 2.

Now that the team is back at practice after relishing in their opening week victory over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, there are a few things New Orleans Saints fans should look out for as the team prepares to play in Las Vegas.

Some aspects of Sunday’s victory went exceptionally well, while others seemingly didn’t go according to plan in the least bit.

The offense struggled to get in any sort of rhythm while the defense anchored the team the entire game. The Saints were shutout in the first quarter, but they managed to come alive, scoring 17 in the second quarter.

Getting a relatively new-look offense on the same page is no easy task with the NFL preseason games being canceled, but things are sure to iron out now that they have a game against a stout defense under their belts.

It was obvious that both sides could’ve used that postseason to improve their communication. That said, let’s dive into three things fans should be watching for as the team head to take on the 1-0 Raiders in Week 2.
