The New Orleans Saints (4-4_ have a great shot in getting above .500% as they post one of the worst teams in the league in the Chicago Bears (2-6). The Bears have shown dedication to improving the defense for the rest of the season by training for Washington Commanders defensive end Montez Sweat. This move by the Bears will attempt to put the orphans of the Saints, led by quarterback Derek Carr to another potentially rough performance.
Car, despite his lack of high-volume passing, has led the Saints’ offense to several key wins through efficient drives. The Saints are ranked ninth in the league in passing yards per game with 243.1 yards per game. The pass defense of the Bears is among the worst units in the league as they are right 30th in passing yards allowed per game with 262.2 yards allowed. Carr should have a more efficient performance than in the past first game with the Saints.
The New York Giants (2-6) are having a disaster of a season, so they will look to salvage what they can to account for some wins moving forward. The Giants are set to go on the road this weekend to face the Las Vegas Raiders (3-5).
Last week in the 13-10 overtime loss to the New York Jets, Giants running back Saquon Barkley rushed for 128 yards on 36 carries. This was his first 100-yard rushing performance of the season and his first since his major injury last year.
Barkley has a chance to do it again against one of the worst rushing defenses in the league this weekend. The Raiders are currently 30th in the league in rushing yards allowed per game, by allowing an average of 140.6 yards per game on the ground. Their defense is illiquid to stop any rushing offense coming straight towards them.
The Washington Commanders (3-5) are not giving up on their season or their potential playoff chances, but they seem to be giving up on several of their key players. The Commanders made a bit of a stir during the NFL trade deadline as they traded two of their best pass rushers to other teams, including former second-overall pick in Chase Young.
The previously start defensive line of the Commanders is now down to two-star defensive tackles with one of them being Jonathan Allen. The Commanders will look to Allen to create a significant pass rush against the offense of the New England Patriots (2-6), who have given up 18 sacks this season.
Allen, a former star pass rusher at Alabama, will look to be the leader of the defense in hopes of helping to make the Commanders get to the playoffs.
