This Saints-Titans matchup could be quite the show.

With Drew Brees and Ryan Tannehill, it's the first time since the NFL went to a 16-game schedule in 1978 that two starting quarterbacks with a passer rating of 114 or better have played this late in the season, though Patrick Mahomes and Philip Rivers came close last season in Week 15.

Brees is the league leader in both passer rating and completion percentage (115.3 rating and 75.8%) just ahead of Tannehill (114.6 rating and 71.5%). Brees and the Saints are chasing a first-round bye to go with their NFC South title.

See below for more details on this late-season NFC-AFC matchup with playoff implications for both teams.

So it looks like CJGJ gets the start again at SS, but man we’re thin at safety. It’s Marcus Williams and CJGJ with only JT Gray backing them up.

Eventually ... or possibly. I think he was more insurance if absolutely needed.
