I'm also seeing clips of them blowing up our offensive line.

In my mind, that first game might as well have been last season. Things are that much different for both teams. I'm most worried though about our injuries. I would be supremely confident if we were healthy. As it is I'm calling it 27-24 Saints.

We were in the red zone 4 times. Just have to execute.

This is ***** TOP SECRET *****

Saints D is also pretty damn good. They stop 4th and goal runs, stop game winning drives and knock the snot out of big mobile QB's and force them into little blue tents.

The thing I remember most from that first game was how Unger hadn't practiced durning the preseason and Armstead was out. Ramczyk started his first game in Armstead's spot. In the first quarter, Strief went down and Kelemete came in. As a result, the line play was terrible. It was easy to tell they had no cohesiveness, they weren't used to playing together yet. Brees had no time and there were no holes for the running backs. I suspect the line will play a heck of a lot better this go around. (unless someone gets hurt again)

Armstead vs Everson Griffen - > that will be a good match up.

The health is a huge issue. They have very few on the injury report OR out for the season. We are like an episode of the Walking Dead

Their starting left guard just broke his ankle. They lost their starting and backup QB's. They lost their 1st round draft choice RB, as well.

"Not certain but I believe if the Saints score more points than the Vikings they should win the game. I'm sure there are some EGGSPURTS who'll argue that point!"
