Both teams are playing with backup quarterbacks and both have defenses that have given up much more than anticipated at the start of the season. This should be a high scoring game with both teams using running and passing to move the ball down the field. Teddy Bridgewater is coming off a 300-plus yard game passing with four TDs and the Saints Michael Thomas is one of the hardest wide receivers in the NFL to cover. Final Score Prediction, New Orleans Saints win and cover ATS 35-31
