Number One: Cameron Jordan vs Bradley Chubb

The game on Sunday is a battle between two great defenses, and the game will likely come down to the defense who makes the biggest plays.

Each of these teams possesses great defensive playmakers on the end of the defensive line as the Saints have Cameron Jordan and the Broncos have Bradley Chubb.

Fortunately for Cameron Jordan and the rest of the New Orleans defense, the Denver Broncos offensive line is known as the worst offensive line in the NFL and savvy veterans like Jordan and Trey Hendrickson should be able to garner up some good pass rush moves.

Jordan has put together a solid season so far as he’s recorded 39 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, nine quarterback hits, and five and a half sacks.

Bradley Chubb will have a harder time as he will be going against one of the best offensive lines in the NFL and likely the best offensive tackle in the NFL in Ryan Ramczyk.

Chubb has had a great season so far, as he’s logged 30 tackles, eight tackles for a loss, 15 quarterback hits, one forced fumble, and six and a half sacks. Chubb is the only true defensive end threat the Saints need to worry about as Von Miller is out for the season with an injury.
