As if heading into the post-Drew Brees era wasn’t daunting enough, Hurricane Ida has shaken up New Orleans’ preparations significantly. 

Consequently, their home opener will be staged in Florida. Jameis Winston is the new main in the Saints’ offence – a huge opportunity for the ex-Tampa Bay QB.

Green Bay Packers are coming off consecutive 13-win seasons that ended in NFC Championship Game defeat, while Aaron Rodgers scooped the 2020 MVP award. They’re expected to be among the league’s heavy hitters again this year

The Packers outlasted the Saints 37-30 in New Orleans early last season. It was the ninth time in 10 encounters the teams had produced a total of 55-plus points.

The RB duel between Alvin Kamara and Aaron Jones is worth the price of admission alone, but the Saints’ setbacks and a tough initiation for Winston points to a straightforward win to Rodgers’ Packers.

Verdict

We are backing the Packers to beat the Saints by 14+ points.
