After winning over the reigning Super Bowl champs in week 8, the New Orleans Saints dropped a heartbreaker against their rivals, the Atlanta Falcons after erasing an 18 point deficit in the fourth quarter. Can the Saints bounce back against one of the hottest teams in the NFL, and pick up another quality road win?

One of the biggest takeaways from their loss against the Falcons was how much the Saints' receivers struggled catching the ball, with several drops from a variety of players offensively. Although the receivers caught passes down the stretch of the game, first half drives stalled because of the drops and the offense finally started clicking over the last nine minutes of the game.



Rod Walker: Saints dropping the ball on season if they don't improve at receiver, tight end
On the other sideline, the Tennessee Titans have been one of the hottest teams in the NFL, coming off five straight victories, including wins against the Bills, Chiefs, Colts and Rams. They beat the Rams, even without their all-pro running back Derrick Henry, who underwent foot surgery. His timeline to return is unknown. After starting 2-2, the Titans have turned it on and look like the best team in the AFC.

In the Sean Payton era, the Saints and Titans have only met four times, with the most recent matchup taking place in 2019 in Ryan Tannehill's first season with the team. The Saints won that matchup, but are 2-2 under Payton against the Titans.

This should be one of the better games of the weekend with two teams fighting for seeding in the playoff picture. The Saints need to keep winning to keep pace with the Buccaneers for the NFC South race, while the Titans want to keep winning to hold off the surging Colts and continue to be a top one or two seed in the AFC.

Numbers to Know
2: This is only the second game between Mike Vrabel and Sean Payton and the first time the Saints have played the same head coach twice in a row from the Titans. The 2007, 2011 and 2015 meetings all had someone different at head coach for the Titans.

8: Combined, both the Saints and Titans have eight wins this season where their quarterback threw for less than 250 yards, four apiece. Both teams rely heavily on their running games and defense.
16: This is the 16th all time meeting between the Oilers/Titans and the Saints. The first meeting happened in 1971, a 13-13 tie, which happens to be the only tie in this series history.

Up at the crack of dawn today and you guys are already posting. Lol. Should he an interesting game today. Ingram should get quite a workload. That Titan defense is good.

I hope these receivers got the memo and catch the ball.

The Titans defense is ranked 30th against the pass. Last I checked that's not good. They have also allowed the 8th most yards per carry versus the run. Not very good either.

Hope history tracks FOR the Saints today.

Re: Saints @ Titans Game Day Thread

Lattimore must win one on one battles with AJ. He's a very good WR & difficult to bring down in the open.

No AK today so I see CSP getting Taysom more involved offensively. Because of his unique skill set, this should help our lackluster WR's create some sort of separation. At least I hope.

Getting pressure on Tanneyhill is key though. Matt Ryan had as much as 4 seconds to go through his progressions last week. Defenders can't cover forever.

Let's Geaux !!!!!
