The New Orleans Saints fell to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 26-9, in Week 4. Quarterback Derek Carr returned to the field after missing part of last week’s game with a shoulder injury, but performed very badly, going 23-for-37 for 127 yards and no touchdowns. The Saints started the season 2-0 with wins over the Titans and the Panthers, but things have fallen apart since they allowed the Packers to stage a fourth-quarter comeback in Week 3.

The Patriots got absolutely destroyed by the Cowboys, with Mac Jones being benched after a dismal performance littered with turnovers. The Saints are a much easier opponent, but it’s still tough to take a favored Pats squad that just benched their starting passer.

We’ll take the Saints and the points.

Pick: Saints
