The New Orleans Saints are headed to Foxborough to take on the New England Patriots. The Saints are looking to bounce back from their rough week two loss against the Carolina Panthers.
While the Patriots are trying to keep their hot streak after their lopsided win against the New York Jets. This should be a very competitive game to open up the Sunday slate.

New England Patriots Preview: Taking Care of Business At Home
The New England Patriots are one or two big plays away from being undefeated this season. Their only loss came against the Miami Dolphins in a 17-16 contest. Their defense has played at an elite level this season.
However, with rookie Mac Jones at the helm of the offense, they have struggled. This is something to be expected with a rookie quarterback starting week one, but the Saints’ defense could do some damage. If they are able to win the game, this will be Jones’s first home win of his career.
New Orleans Saints: Bouncing Back After a Rough Week 2
The New Orleans Saints opened the season with a dominant week one victory against the Green Bay Packers, however, they looked like a shell of themselves in week two. Jameis Winston had an awful game against the Panthers. He finished the contest with a 50% completion percentage, only threw for 111 yards, and threw zero touchdowns and two interceptions.
Winston will be the x-factor in this game. If he shows up like he did in the season opener, the Saints should have no issue winning the game, but if he looks like he did last week, it will be a rough game for New Orleans.
Odds & Free Betting Analysis for This NFL Game
As previously mentioned, Jameis Winston will be the player that decides this game. He is facing off against a very talented New England defense. Despite this, he is currently capable of doing bigger things than Mac Jones is.
Both teams very well may end up relying on their running games to get through this week. If that is the case, the Saints have the Patriots well outmatched. The Saints have much better weapons than the Patriots and their defense is nothing to scoff at either.
Despite being underdogs, the Saints are more than capable of coming into Foxborough and stealing a win after their tough loss to the Panthers last week.
