The New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos are set to square off on Sunday at 4:05 pm and it is looking like it’ll be one of the best games of the entire weekend.

The New Orleans Saints will be without future Hall of Fame quarterback Drew Brees in this game, but they will have Emmanuel Sanders, Trevor Siemian, and Bennie Fowler all looking for revenge on their former team.

Fowler won’t be playing as he’s injured, but Siemian and Sanders should both be active for the big game. Former Saints linebacker Anthony Chickillo is on the Broncos roster who picked him up after the Saints cut him in August.

The Saints will likely be led by 30-year-old quarterback Taysom Hill. Alvin Kamara will also be active, but it’ll probably be Michael Thomas who will continue to get the attention from Hill, who will be starting his second consecutive game for New Orleans.

On a seven-game win streak, the Saints will look to continue their reign over the NFC. There will certainly be some interesting matchups in this showdown with Denver, one that the Saints are projected to win.
