What to Know
The New Orleans Saints are staying on the road Sunday to face off against the New England Patriots at 1 p.m. ET Sept. 26 at Gillette Stadium. The point spread is more or less neutral, so fans should expect a close contest.
New Orleans received a tough blow last week as they fell 26-7 to the Carolina Panthers. QB Jameis Winston wasn’t much of a difference maker for the Saints; Winston threw two interceptions with only 5.05 yards per passing attempt.
Meanwhile, New England had enough points to win and then some against the New York Jets last week, taking their matchup 25-6. No one had a standout game offensively for the Patriots, but they got scores from RB James White and RB Damien Harris.
Most of the squad’s points came courtesy of special teams, which contributed 13. K Nick Folk delivered a perfect 4-for-4 game.
New England’s win lifted them to 1-1 while New Orleans’ loss dropped them down to 1-1. New England caused 4 turnovers against New York, so New Orleans will need to take especially good care of the ball.
