Not sure sure about number 4 and number 2 on that list. But number 5, yes for sure!

Our defense historically takes 2-3 games to get on step. Offense needs to come out hard and create some distance on the scoreboard.

I have a feeling this one will feel like a nail biter at halftime, but in the second half the two teams will naturally separate, and the Saints will gradually take it over.

Mercilus/Watt vs Armstead/Ramz ...

Good battle.

IMO if Houston doesn't win those defensive matches up front, it could be a long day on their secondary.

Is Watt a mere shell of himself, especially now that he's engaged/married?

Dude had 16 sacks last year and at times he appeared unblock able.

JJ has battled injuries as of late but still an absolute terror off the edge.

Good thing for us ... we have ELITE tackles.

Nothing is "going on" with Latavius Murray. He practice like all other regulars as far as I know this past week.

Yes sir.

Everyone practiced today with the exception of Mario Edwards.

Footnote - when I say everyone, that also includes Craig R, Alex Anzalone and J Cook. I know there are a few people concerned about these guys - JP embedded a tweet on this subject today as well.
