Aaron Rodgers is going to carve the D up

It will (once again) come down to turnovers and how many times our offense fumbles or throws interceptions

Brees will likely throw 2 picks regardless.

But neither have anything to do with the defensive side of the ball. Thats where we'll win or lose this game. Our offense should score in the high 20's, low 30's.

Re: Saints are favored against the Pack Sunday Night

No way we should be favored. If I was in Vegas this weekend I would consider this a lock if I was not being a bias Saints fan.

Truth is we should lose this game by double digits. I just dont have faith in the leadership (coaches and players) of this team to turn it around.

Re: Saints are favored against the Pack Sunday Night

Payton and the Saints' streak of 13 straight prime-time home games is on the line. And 16 of their last 17 home night games.

It will really be more about that -- whether we as fans can continue to rely on the dominance of Drew and Sean and the gang at home, under the bright lights, on a big stage, more than it will be a verdict on the whole season.

We could easily lose Sunday and still be in the same exact situation we're in now, where everyone else keeps losing and limping along, and we're still in the hunt in a battle of mediocrity in our division and conference. So I'm not stressing out about scenarios or tiebreakers or who is doing what in the division, AT ALL, until another month or so goes by. I just want to see if Payton and Brees and this team still have it in them to put on the three-ring football circus that we know and love.

LSU will probably lose to Ole Miss, and most folks will just keep drinking straight through....win or lose in Baton Rouge on Saturday, the Dome will be riotous and rocking on Sunday, for sure. And a marquee matchup in prime time, with Halloween starting to creep in to Bourbon Street and the Quarter, lots of visiting cheese heads -- it doesn't get much better than that.

I'm looking for ENTERTAINMENT. I want to love this team again. I'm ready. I don't think I've been this pumped about a home night game since the Steelers in 2010, and that was a game for the ages.

I put money on the Saints to win the Superbowl and the division every year. People think I am too critical and I'm not a true fan but I 'put my money where my mouth is'.

I am not out of it yet!

If any team's offense plays perfect, they win... You must have defense when things don't go perfect on offense. And since this game is played by humans, you don't get "perfect" offenses

Re: Saints are favored against the Pack Sunday Night

Rogers is going to abuse our defense, sorry. It would be different if we could get some kind of pressure on him, but we know that answer.

However, in a shoot-out I like the Saints in the Dome, providing the O-line doesn't have Brees running for his life.
