Dallas at New Orleans Game Preview
Why Dallas Will Win
Didn’t you used to be the New Orleans offense?
Buffalo might have a fantastic defense – at least it does against the mediocre offenses – but 190 yards of offense isn’t going to get it done against anyone.
The Saints don’t have enough of a running game without Alvin Kamara – who’s very, very iffy again, at best – and worse yet, the defense has gone bye-bye and isn’t picking up the slack.
No matter what the configuration is – Zeke Elliott is likely a limited go, or Tony Pollard could take on even more work – the Dallas running game should go off.
The New Orleans defense that’s been amazing all year got ripped apart by Philadelphia and then couldn’t handle a Buffalo ground game with no running backs.
Why New Orleans Will Win
Didn’t you used to be the Dallas Cowboys?
Everything was rolling right along, the team somehow got through the Cooper Rush game against Minnesota with a win, and then … yuck.
One blowout win over a miserable Atlanta team doesn’t mask the run of three losses in four games.
Elliott is trying to play through a balky knee, CeeDee Lamb is back after missing last week with a concussion, and Amari Cooper was out with Covid problems.
The Saint run defense really is a whole lot better than it showed over the last two weeks – even if it’s banged up on the outside – and on the other side, the Dallas defense has picked the wrong time to start struggling.
It gives up way too many passing yards, but …
What’s Going To Happen
Welcome to the Taysom Hill game.
Kamara might be back – he’s been practicing – and Mark Ingram is a full go, but the New Orleans season hinges on whether or not Hill is any good.
He suffered a bad concussion early in the season, and then then he had a problem with his foot. He’ll be a fantasy god with two short touchdown passes and a couple of touchdown runs to push past the team’s ugly losing streak.
