If the Saints aren’t able to return home in Week 4, this Week 5 matchup against the Washington Football Team will be their fifth consecutive road game, so to speak. Fortunately, this is a fairly favorable slate with two of the five teams coming against NFC East squads.
The Washington Football Team might have won their division last year but this team has a lot more questions than answers. Ryan Fitzpatrick is hit or miss as a starting quarterback and hopefully, the Saints get the “miss” version of Fitzpatrick.
Washington has a tremendous defense so this will be a low-scoring game but the Saints should be able to come out victorious.
Prediction: Saints 17, Washington 14
Following the bye week, the Saints hit the road for Seattle to face the Seahawks, who are one of those teams that seem to always be good. Russell Wilson is probably the reason as to why, as the guy has yet to miss a start in his decorated career.
Last season fans weren’t allowed in many stands and that helped visiting teams when they played in Seattle but fans will be back this year, meaning it’ll be loud when the Saints arrive at CenturyLink Field for a Monday night showdown.
The Saints have always played Seattle tough but this is just a game they’re probably not destined to win. Hopefully it’s at least a close game.
Prediction: Saints 21, Seahawks 28
