at Seattle Seahawks (8-5)
With Russell Wilson leading your team anything can happen. Pair him with DK Metcalf and Tyler Lockett, who they just signed to a long-term deal, and you have a deadly combination. If Chris Carson stays healthy this team could give many teams troubles, including the Saints.
vs Miami Dolphins (8-6)
For some reason, I think the Dolphins will be a playoff team next season. They barely missed the playoffs last year and they had a ton of money to spend in free agency bringing in Will Fuller and more. They also have a ton of draft picks. This is probably the most “on-the-fence” call, but I went with my gut.
at Washington Football Team (9-6)
The Washington Football Team on the other hand got the Dolphins leftovers in Ryan Fitzpatrick. Even with the addition of Chase Young, I still don’t think they make it to the tier of talent that the Saints have. I don’t even see this being a close game.
vs Green Bay Packers (9-7)
Aaron Rodgers, Aaron Jones, and Devante Adams will always be a contending team. This team finished first in the NFC last season and will be up there again this season. Without the leadership of Drew Brees, Winston will have to be perfect to win this game.
at Tennessee Titans (9-8)
The NFL added this 17th game about a week ago. The Saints did not benefit from this decision as they added another top AFC team. I don’t know, with all of their personnel losses, that they can pull this game off with a win.
