The New Orleans Saints are a perfect 3-0 since Drew Brees was injured against the Los Angeles Rams but may suffer their first loss since in Week 6.
The New Orleans Saints have well-exceeded expectations without Drew Brees under center the last three games. While Saint fans have always stayed optimistic, most of the analysts around the league figured that this would be this season very difficult for New Orleans, some even wrote the team off entirely.
The Saints are now halfway through the initial expected recovery time of six weeks and have not lost a game since he was injured, giving the team a 4-1 record overall. At the absolute worst the Saints will be 4-4 when Brees returns that that is very, very unlikely.
Some fans are aiming for three more wins to give the team a 7-1 record and 6-0 without Brees, which should seemingly guarantee them the first seed in the NFC. As great as that sounds, though, that will not be the case.
I still think that the Saints win two of their remaining three games without Brees, assuming he does not come back early and the one that is standing out is the one that lies ahead against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
I know that no fan wants to read negative things about their team but I correctly predicted how Week 5 was going to go and I feel like I have Week 6 locked down as well.
I’m a Debbie Downer, I know, but here are two key reasons why the New Orleans Saints may fall to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 6.
