A pivotal showdown between two teams who have started the season with two wins and two losses.
Washington have squeezed out high-scoring victories over the lowly Giants and Falcons, while going down to the Chargers and Bills.
Taylor Heinicke continues to impress, passing for 290 yards, 3 TDs and 0 INTs in Atlanta. But only two teams in the league have given up more than Washington’s 30.5 per game.
New Orleans Saints’ big, Jameis Winston-led Week 1 win over the Packers is looking more and more like a mirage. Since then, they’ve been pounded by the Panthers (26-7), got up against the Pats (28-13) and gone down to the Giants in overtime (27-21).
Last week, Taysom Hill rushed in two touchdowns before they blew a 21-10 lead.
The teams’ last six encounters all produced 53+ points, with the last five witnessing at least 62 points. With both teams yet to reveal their true identity, the over shapes as the best play in a flip-of-the-coin match-up.
