Will be meaningless. Our last 2 games haven't been spectacular but this one will, SAINTS 27 - VIKINGS 13

Re: Vikings -3.5

They have a great front seven. There’s a lot of speed and strength there. I don’t think they’ll feel the need to stack the box. We should be able to move the ball on the ground a little better this game. They have an elite safety and corner. The other safety and corner are just okay. I trust Lattimore to shadow Diggs. He’s their best receiver, it’s just that Thielen is the favorite target. He’s going to get his on Crawley, but we have to keep them out of the end zone. Make their QB beat us.

I've never heard of a favorite target not being the best receiver. He might not physically impress you, but apparently he's doing more things right than Diggs.

Re: Vikings -3.5

These are two different teams from week one, Minn has the pressures of a QB without playoff experience, a chance to run the table at home all the way through the superbowl, and two weeks to think about it.
I just hope the Saints aren't spent from this stressful win over the Kittens.
If the Saints play the kind of balanced football they are capable of, I think they have a great chance to win.

I'll take that chance. Week #1, Bradford had DeVante Harris to pick on and no Lattimore on the other side.

He definitely physically impresses me. Fast, great hands, good routes. They have similar measurables athletically, but Thielen has more size. I just think Diggs is slightly better and would have explosive numbers too if he was targets 8 to 10 times a game. I wouldn’t be upset about somebody thinking Thielen is better. He delivered all year in fantasy football for me.

Re: Vikings -3.5

if i recall we had hell on getting to brafford that first game he was dumping it out quick we had no chance of disruption and when we did get that lick on him he was out the rest of season, i still believe it was saints defense that killed his season, now we have a little roach thats hard to attack because he abandons the pocket and throws well on the run, cam has to stay home and keep him inside that pocket.

Re: Vikings -3.5

Crawley didn't play well yesterday against what amounts to a #4 receiver (Clay). Still shaking my head why we had Bush on Olsen so much.

Just like Carolina, we are going to have trouble running the ball, especially down another lineman

Looks like this one will be Brees' to win, again
