Green Bay (-4) vs New Orleans

This game will be played outdoors in Jacksonville due to Hurricane Ida.

The Saints finished 5th in scoring last season despite below average quarterback play from Drew Brees and Taysom Hill thanks to excellent coaching by Sean Payton. Jameis Winston should be able to step in and play at the same level the New Orleans QBs did in 2020 but his receiving weapons might be the worst group in the NFL. The Saints lost TE Jared Cook and WR Emmanuel Sanders in the offseason. WR Michael Thomas will start the year on the Physically Unable To Perform List. Marquez Callaway, Tre’Quan Smith, and Deonte Harris will likely be the week 1 starters – an unproven group to say the least.

The Saints defense lost edge rusher Trey Hendrickson (21st in pressures) and placed starting CB Brain Poole on the Injured Reserve. We have New Orleans rated at just 0.3 points better than average going into this season.

The Packers retained MVP Aaron Rodgers this offseason, but his offensive line will take a step backwards after leading the league in pass blocking efficiency last year. All-Pro Center Corey Linsley is now on the Chargers and All-Pro LT David Bakhtiari will start the season on the Physically Unable To Perform List.

Green Bay’s defense returns basically the exact same personnel from a year ago and we expect them to be above average but not elite once again. Overall, we have the Packers rated highly overall (5th) but Green Bay won’t be favorites to return to their third-straight NFL Championship game.

Our model favors the Packers by 2.6 points with a predicted total of 48.1 points
