Predicting all 17 games of the 2021 New Orleans Saints season
at Atlanta Falcons (Round 1) (1-0)
The Atlanta Falcons didn’t win a game against the Saints last year and I don’t foresee them changing that this year. Atlanta hasn’t been super active in free agency and they will most likely trade down in the NFL Draft. They’re building, but this isn’t their year.
at Carolina Panthers (Round 1) (2-0)
Christian McCaffrey was out most of last season which probably played a big part in the substandard play of the team, but even with him back, I don’t think that’s enough to take down Alvin Kamara and the Saints.
The New Orleans Saints have a tough 17-game schedule in 2021. Looking over every game, how will each one turn out?
at New England Patriots (3-0)
The Patriots brought back Cam Newton this season. The Saints didn’t play them last year, but the Patriots didn’t finish well. Most history would tell you the Saints should lose one of these first four games, but I have them rolling past the offensive-less Patriots.
vs Atlanta Falcons (Round 2) (4-0)
There have been multiple potential suitors looking for Atlanta’s pick at No. 4 who are searching for a quarterback. The biggest two are mentioned above — the Patriots and the Panthers. Julio is another year older, and Winston or Hill get it done against the Falcons.
