This week the Arizona Cardinals look to extend their win streak, unfortunately for them a tough and undefeated New Orleans Saints squad stands in the way. The Cardinals have the odds stacked against them and it will be tough to come out of the Superdome with a win on Sunday.
Despite the Saints’ solid 2-0 start, they still think they have room to improve and things to fix.
“We’ve got a lot to fix. We’ve got a ton of football to play,” head coach Sean Payton said, via ESPN. “Obviously, we’ve got to be better at scoring and I’ve got to do a better job.”
Quarterback Drew Brees agrees, specifically about their lack of success in the red-zone. The Saintgs have converted only 1 of seven red-zone chances into touchdowns.
“We’ve certainly had some opportunities and just haven’t taken advantage of it yet,” Brees said. “Eventually, that will bite us if we don’t get it fixed.”
This game seems like an easy win for the Saints at home but they shouldn’t take the Cardinals lightly. They come into the game with the second ranked defense against the run according to ESPN, allowing an average of 58 yards per game. The flip side of that coin is they haven’t been as good against the pass and the Saints like to air it out.
