The Saints have a Top 10 rushing attack.
If you take what we just talked about and switch it around, you have another reason that the Saints have a good shot at beating the Chiefs this week. The Saints rushing attack against the Chiefs rushing defense is a matchup to watch.
New Orleans Saints have totaled 1,720 yards on the ground this season which averages out to be 137.3 per game. Between Latavius Murray and Alvin Kamara, the black and gold have a two-headed rushing monster that the Chiefs will have to deal with.
They also won’t be dealing with it with a good defense. The Chiefs have given up 1,667 points to opposing rushing offense. They give up 128.4 yards per game on the ground. Kamara and Murray should have a field day on the Chiefs’ defense.
So far we have seen that you are pinning a top Chiefs passing offense with a top Saints passing defense and a top Saints rushing offense against a low Chiefs rushing defense. If the Saints stick to this gameplan, they have a good chance to take this upset.
