On paper, the Saints look as if they might be able to pass the ball at will against this Dolphins defense. The Miami secondary does not look to have the skill or athleticism to keep up with the New Orleans backs and receivers. The key for the Saints will lie in their ability to contain Dolphin rushers Wake and Suh, and allow Brees to find his open targets. The return of Snead to this offense should be huge, expect to see him and Thomas heavily involved in the offensive game plan early.

Agreed.

Suh and Wake are problems.

Ingram is a great blocker. Expect to see him in the game early and often. He can give Drew that extra time he needs to deliver the ball. If Miami blitzes I have faith that Ingram can pick up the block and let Drew slice up their defense.

FWIW, the Dolphins didn't leave for London until Thursday afternoon. That may not bode well for the Fins faithful. IMO, bad logistics by Miami.

Advantage - >Saints.

Jet lag is a beautiful *****!

I'd like to know the statistics from last year on the London games? Did any teams leave as early as we did? If so; I'd be interested in seeing their performance over the other teams...

Praying that we travel well this year. I haven't forgotten the last few seasons which have ruined our record of dominance at home. 2014 was especially painful.

Unfortunately, it'll be at the soccer pitch just down the road.

I doubt Peat will be able to handle Suh. I hope someone gets some payback on him for being the dirty SOB that he is.
