Packers vs Saints Predictions and Picks

After watching the Saints struggle in Week 2 and the Packers dominate, it is tough not to take Aaron Rodgers and the points in this one, though it would be a total mistake to ever underestimate Drew Brees and company.

Green Bay looks ready for the postseason already, and nothing will get the Packers more excited about their prospects than to beat the Saints at home in this exciting Week 3 NFC showdown.

As a team, the New Orleans Saints still looked a bit rusty in their Week 2 loss to the Raiders, especially in the penalty department, and without injured deep threat WR Michael Thomas, they could have a tough time in Week 3 against these humming Packers.

These two NFC teams have met on the gridiron 25 times before, with New Orleans winning 9 of those games and Green Bay winning the other 16.

Can Packers QB Aaron Rodger Continue His 2020 Dominance?

Watching the 36-year old Packers QB Aaron Rodgers play this season makes one wonder if age actually matters when you’re that talented under center.

Take Week 1, for example, when Rodgers posted 4 TD passes on 364 passing yards and 32 completions, and Week 2 with 240 yards and 2 TDs, zero picks so far, making him look ready for the postseason already, which is impressive given the lack of preseason this year.

One key to whether Rodgers does will in this one is if his main deep threat receiver Davante Adams can suit up for this one since he is currently listed as questionable after tweaking his hamstring in Week 2.

Editor’s Picks

Can QB Brees Rebound His Saints After Their Embarrassing Week 2 Loss?

Nobody who wasn’t wearing black and silver expected the Saints to lose to the Raiders last week, but they seemed helpless against Derek Carr’s arm and Darren Waller’s routes.

Brees even through in an atypical interception (he only threw 4 of them last season) though he was still able to complete 26 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown, numbers that prove he is effective even on his ‘worst’ days.

The Saints seem to struggle to go 2-0 every season, so there is technically nothing to worry about here, but every season the football doubters want to question whether Brees still has it, and this Week 3 battle with Aaron Rodgers will be the perfect place to prove he certainly does.

Packers Key Player: (RB) Aaron Jones

A huge factor out of the Green Bay backfield is RB Aaron Jones, who, in his fourth NFL season, is growing into one of the best at his position as both a ball carrier and a pass catcher extraordinaire.

In their Week 2 win, Jones put on a rushing clinic by posting 18 carries for 168 yards and two touchdowns plus 4 receptions for another 68 yards and a touchdown in their win over the lesser Lions.

Expect Jones to play a big role against the Saints in Week 3, their ability to stop the run looking somewhat questionable in Week 2 after letting the Raiders post 115+ yards on the ground.

Saints Key Player: (WR) Michael Thomas

New Orleans QB Drew Brees could not have missed a teammate more in Week 2 than his injured main target Michael Thomas, arguably one of the best at his position in the league.

Thomas is still listed as questionable right now after hurting his ankle in Week 1, and that spells trouble for the Saints who are anxious to make up for the Week 2 loss they dealt with against the supposedly lesser skilled Raiders.

Thomas will be a Week 3 game-time decision and will likely suit up if he is at all able, but if he can’t, the team will need way more production from his backups, namely Emmanuel Sanders and Tre’Quan Smith, who didn’t appear to be up to the task in Week 2.
