Za’Darius Smith and Adrian Amos come in at 88 and 87 overall respectively as well as a pair of key pieces in a stacked Green Bay defense.
The New Orleans Saints will try to build on a 43-24 win over the Los Angeles Chargers last time out.

This is a great game by name brand, Packers vs. Saints, but in these sim games, I’m having a hard time getting a read on the Packers. Green Bay’s gone on nice runs here and there, but we’ve seen Green Bay get beat down quite a bit as of late. New Orleans has been consistent throughout the course of these sim games and the Saints are still one of the better teams in the game as well. I’ll lay the point with New Orleans in this one.
