The first position we'll take a crack at is the quarterback position. Now here's where it gets tricky. Bryce Young, in the honest opinion of this writer, is far more talented than the veteran signal caller for the Saints, Derek Carr. That said, in this week two matchup with only one career start under his belt the think the advantage has to go to Carr.

Carr tossed 305 yards (good for fifth in the NFL in week one), completed 69.7 percent of his passes, and tossed a touchdown with just one interception. Young, on the other hand, completed just 52.6 percent of his passes for 146 yards and a touchdown to go with two interceptions in his NFL debut.

Statistically speaking, Carr has the upper hand in this matchup, but Young certainly has all the tools in his toolbox to give the Saints a hard time on Monday Night. All in all, this matchup goes in favor of New Orleans.
