Pros: The New Orleans Saints are finding ways to win game despite missing the best player in franchise history who just happens to play the most important position in the NFL. Still, Teddy Bridgewater has done a good enough job replacing Drew Brees through the last few weeks.
Sean Payton deserves a ton of credit here as the Saints have transformed from an offensive team to a defensive team that wins in the less talked about areas of the field like special teams and on the ground.
Quick shoutout here to the most underrated player who seems to make the Pro Bowl every year, Cameron Jordan had another huge game with 2 sacks.
Cons: There aren’t many teams that have Gardner Minshew level QBs starting on their offense outside of the Titans and Jaguars, so when they have to play real QBs you have to worry about their ability to win these kinds of games where Teddy isn’t doing too much.
Speaking of not doing too much, the Saints need to keep finding creative ways to get Taysom Hill involved, and in a perfect world that helps Alvin Kamara get going as well.
