15. . . . New Orleans Saints. 3. team

A foe the Tennessee Titans are unfamiliar with visits in Week 10.

Think about something for a second. Some of you have children, and the entire time that they’ve been alive, Drew Brees has been the quarterback of the New Orleans Saints. That era is behind us now, and such is life.

People grow. Things change. We all move on.

The ball, seemingly, will be handed to the winner of a quarterback battle between Jameis Winston and Taysom Hill, but the Saints have an offensive genius as their head coach, Sean Payton. That hasn’t changed.

Tennessee has a fight on its hands in Week 10, and they should be able to make enough stops on defense. Their biggest concern, however, is cracking the code to N.O.’s talented defensive unit, which has been led by Dennis Allen since 2015.

Don’t let the number of points that they gave up in 2020 distract you. They finished in the top ten of all NFL teams in sacks, interceptions, turnovers, passing yards allowed, and rushing yards allowed.

They lost Janoris Jenkins (who signed with Tennessee), but the additions of highly-touted draftees like Payton Turner, Pete Werner, and Paulson Adebo figure to keep this train rolling in 2021.
