3 New Orleans Saints to watch in Week 1 vs. Packers

New Orleans Saints to watch – No. 1: Jameis Winston
The most important position on the field is the quarterback, and with Jameis Winston starting his first game as the full-time starter, he is the most significant player to watch. With a humongous chip on his shoulder and all the grinding he has done, it’s finally time to see what Winston has in store for this team.
Just the storyline alone should excite fans. The former number one overall pick has been doubted by multiple fans, analysts, and players. He is likely getting his final chance with a new team that was just struck by a nasty hurricane.
This incredible story alone should make Winston’s debut game must-watch tv. Winston must have a good game because otherwise, the quarterback conversations are going to get underway before we even know it.
This Green Bay team is one of the best in football. If Winston struggles passing the ball, it will almost certainly lead to a loss. With Winston under center, we will likely see a different Saints playbook. We have been primarily a short pass offense these past couple of years due to Drew Brees’ arm strength.
Now with Winston under center, it’s likely we will see the team stretch the field more. It will be interesting to see If Winston can live up to the hype, and proves the doubters wrong.
It will definitely be an entertaining Week 1. With lots of great football played. Speaking for most NFL fans, It will be great to have football back.
