The New Orleans Saints resume their schedule after a bye last week. The Saints entered the bye as winners of their last two games after an 0-2 start, and return to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time since a September 17th loss to the New England Patriots. Coming to town are the 3-2 Detroit Lions, who are coming off of a 27-24 loss to Carolina a week ago.

Today, Canal Street Chronicles will take a look at some matchups to watch as the Saints defense lines up across from the Detroit offense.

We need to stop Tate, he has killed us countless times the past 3 times we have played and lost to Detroit.

I don't think Tate makes this years Saints secondary look like a fool this time around. Latt & Crawley are playing well on those boundaries. Applying pressure on Stafford will be paramount.

I don't see Tate doing much of anything. His YPC is way down this year, just not getting deep throws. We also have two healthy good CBs.

Re: Saints vs. Lions Matchups: New Orleans Defense vs. Detroit Offense

I hate to say it but Tate scares me a little. He could present problems for my boy Crawley. Tate is tough and is more than willing to go across the middle and mix it up inside. "He accepts the physicality of route running" LOL. Seriously though, this is a tough matchup for Crawley who is fast becoming one of my favorite Saints. It'll be fun to watch. I hope. WhoDat!

I'm being as quiet as I can before this game because I have no idea how it plays out.
