The Green Bay Packers have been on absolute fire offensively through two games, scoring a combined 85 points and they're the only team to top 1,000 yards of offense. The New Orleans Saints are coming off a disappointing showing against the Las Vegas Raiders, and we can't forget they allowed the Buccaneers to hang around in their season opener. The Saints offense has proven to be a little more manageable with Michael Thomas still sidelined with an ankle injury. The Packers are downright rolling right now and it's always intriguing to get Rodgers as an underdog.
