The New Orleans Saints had a great win to start the 2019 season that will hopefully carry over momentum to the NFC Championship game rematch.
The New Orleans Saints came back from an 11-point halftime deficit in a wild second half and were able to walk away with a 30-28 victory over the Houston Texans. Although the Saints almost blew it by letting Deshaun Watson go down the field in two plays, Drew Brees was able to get into range for Wil Lutz to bang the game-winner.
The Saints won their first season-opener since 2013 and head into the most anticipated game of the regular season with a winning record. All eyes will be on the Saints in Week 2 as they take on the Los Angeles Rams in an NFC Championship rematch.
We all know what happened last time these two sides squared off. The Saints were driving down the field and were in position to win the game and definitely would have won if it was not for the referees missing one of the most blatant pass interference calls of all-time.
The game went to overtime, Drew Brees threw an interception and the Rams knocked in the game-winning field goal. A few months later and the NFL adopted a new rule where teams can now challenge pass interference calls or no calls.
This game is in LA, so the Rams do have the advantage of not having to play in the thunderous Superdome. However, you know this is going to be the most hungry a team has ever been in a Week 2 win.
The Rams are no joke, though. They should not be taken lightly. If the New Orleans Saints are going to win this game, these three players are going to have to play well.
