The New Orleans Saints return to the Caesars Superdome for the first time since the second week of preseason and the Dome should be rocking. It’ll be the first time the place will be at near-full capacity since January 2020 and Who Dat Nation will be out in full force for this tilt against the Giants.

This should be the perfect game to return to the Caesars Superdome, as the Giants are 0-3 on the year and struggling, to say the least. The teams they’ve lost to aren’t exactly stellar (though the Broncos are 3-0, so that’s something, I guess), which doesn’t bode well for the G-Men.

Let’s take a look at three things to know about the Saints’ Week 4 opponent.

Vulnerable against the pass

For anyone who’s watched the Saints this year, it’s not crazy to say that they’ve struggled in the passing game. Jameis Winston has thrown for just 387 yards, seven touchdowns, and two interceptions through three games. He’s yet to have a game where he tossed for over 150 yards but he might be able to accomplish that feat (and then some) against the G-Men.

New York has surrendered the 12th-most passing yards in the league. Here are the stats from the quarterbacks the Giants have faced so far along with their numbers:

  • Teddy Bridgewater – 28-of-36, 264 yards, 2 TD
  • Taylor Heinicke – 34-of-46, 336 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT
  • Matt Ryan – 27-of-36, 243 yards, 2 TD

While only Heinicke threw for over 300 yards, Winston should be able to get over 200 yards for the first time this season against this group.
