The Saints took a pretty big step back from their blowout win over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1. New Orleans went on the road in North Carolina and lost 26-7 to the Panthers on Sunday. Jameis Winston looked like the QB we were used to seeing, throwing for 111 yards and 2 INTs. Alvin Kamara was a non-factor with just 12 touches for 30 total yards. This is more the type of team we expected the Saints to be heading into the season. Now, they head into one of the toughest places to win in the NFL.
The Patriots defense clamped down on the New York Jets in Week 2, forcing rookie QB Zach Wilson to throw 4 INTs. New England had a pretty easy time taking care of their AFC East rivals, as the team usually does season-to-season. We’ll see if the Patriots start to allow rookie QB Mac Jones to push the ball down field. There’s a scenario where New England falls behind in this contest and is forced to throw.
