Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs New Orleans Saints Game Preview

Why New Orleans Saints Will Win

The Saints figured it out.

The 27-26 win over Atlanta was hardly pretty, but Michael Thomas looked like he might be close to form, Jameis Winston had a good day, and the coaching staff worked Taysom Hill into the mix.

It’ll take that sort of creativity to keep up with the Buccaneers.

The Saints didn’t dial up the pressure, but it has been Tom Brady’s kryptonite over the last two seasons – it really was last season – and it needs to be able to  limit the big plays. Brady didn’t go off against Dallas, but …

Week 2 CFN NFL Expert Picks

Why Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win

The Buccaneer defense pitched a gem in the 19-3 win, the running game was great, and now both are going against a wounded Saint squad.

Can Winston step up with his his banged up back? Will Alvin Kamara be right with his injured ribs?

Tampa Bay has its share of injuries and concerns – mostly at receiver – but here comes the running game on a Saint defense that got ripped up by Atlanta.

If the Falcons can control the clock and bang away for over 200 rushing yards, Tampa Bay should be able to do the same.

Week 2 NFL Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Once again, Tampa Bay will get the win without Brady throwing needing to throw 40 times.

The Buccaneers will get the job done on the lines. This will be a defensive battle, but Leonard Fournette will get a heavy workload – even with a hamstring problem – and Brady will be more than fine on the midrange throws to keep things moving.

New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons Game Preview

Why New Orleans Saints Will Win

Where are the guys? Where’s the talent on Atlanta?

It’s an interesting mix of players full of youth and potential, but it might take a little bit.

There’s not going to be much of a Falcon running game to worry about when Marcus Mariota isn’t taking off, and the defense that allowed the fourth-most points in the NFL now gets a revamped Saint attack that added a – maybe – healthy Michael Thomas and Chris Olave to the receiving corps.

The defense has the secondary to clamp down on the mediocre Falcon receivers – at least until Drake London gets going – and again, there’s not enough of a running game to make up for it. However …

Week 1 CFN NFL Expert Picks

Why Atlanta Falcons Will Win

Don’t be stunned if Mariota is dangerous.

He’s got the experience and ability to at least keep the chains moving, and he’s going to have to pull a few rabbits out of the hat to keep things moving.

On the other side, the Falcons need to get the pass rush going right away. The Saint offensive front is questionable going into the season – it’s fine, but not amazing – and the running game might not be there if Jameis Winston isn’t finding ways to spread the short-range passing game around.

There’s one problem …

Week 1 NFL Schedule, Predictions, Game Previews

What’s Going To Happen

Atlanta isn’t really going to have much of a pass rush.

New Orleans might not be all that flashy, but it’ll be effective enough offensively to go along with a nasty defense that’s going to hammer down on anything Atlanta tries to do through the air.

The Falcons will have a few nice moments helped by three interceptions, but the offense won’t do enough to capitalize on the chances.

Saints 1st-round pick Trevor Penning out indefinitely with foot injury

New Orleans Saints offensive tackle Trevor Penning will require surgery to repair his foot injury

The New Orleans Saints will be without one of their first-round picks for the foreseeable future.

Offensive tackle Trevor Penning suffered a torn ligament in his foot that will require surgery, knocking him out of action indefinitely, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

Penning was carted to the locker room after suffering the injury during Friday night’s preseason game against the Los Angeles Chargers.

The No. 19 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft, Penning was expected to challenge for the starting left tackle spot, following the departure of Terron Armstead in free agency.

NFL Letdown Games for Every Team

What are the potential letdown games for every NFL team? They’re the battles that should be a problem.

What games are the ones each NFL team has to look out for? It’s a LONG season with plenty of lulls, so which games are set up to be a letdown moment for every team?

Predicting each outcome takes into account location, scheduling fatigue, matchup intensity, and much more. These are the games – including the sandwich battles between two giant opponents – that each team should probably win, but might have issues.

Saints sign 1st-round picks Chris Olave, Trevor Penning

The New Orleans Saints have signed four of their picks from the 2022 NFL draft, including a pair of first-round selections

The New Orleans Saints made it official with a handful of their draft picks Friday morning, signing four of their rookie selections to their rookie contracts.

Those signing their first pro deals Friday included the Saints’ pair of first-round picks, wide receiver Chris Olave and offensive tackle Trevor Penning.

Olave will give the Saints a much-needed No. 2 receiver to pair with veteran Michael Thomas, while Penning is expected to be the team’s starting left tackle, following the departure of Terron Armstead in free agency.

Traditionally and statistically, Day 3 of the NFL Draft is a total wasteland. You’re far, far better packaging your picks to move up into the top three rounds of a future draft – the odds of getting a consistently decent starter are shockingly small.

But every team thinks it can make magic out of the Day 3 mess of prospects, and it’s worth a shot to dumb-luck into a possible mainstay. What are the remaining needs that need to be filled for each team? Here are every team’s picks so far with the possibilities of who they could get.

Of course this all blows up once the trades start flying, but the idea is to give a rough snapshot of what each team might be able to do.
