You absolutely had to be impressed with what Chad Henne was able to do at the helm of the Dolphins two weeks ago as he completed 20 out of 26 passes for 241 yards and two scores. If he can provide something of a threat downfield, that will maybe open things up more for the Wildcat offensive sets.

However, it’s going to be very hard to go punch-for-punch with Drew Brees, who after going without a touchdown for a couple of games, thrrew for 369 yards and four TD’s against a beleaguered Giants secondary last week, in what was a masterful performance that scored a resounding 48-27 win in the NFL sports book odds. On the season, Brees has 13 TD’s and just two interceptions, and he is averaging 280 yards.

Obviously this is a big challenge for the Miami secondary, which is giving up 8.4 yards per passing attempt and uses rookies Viontae Davis and Sean Smith in key roles. The Dolphins have allowed eleven pass plays of 25 or more yards, and Brees, who is averaging 8.8 yards a pass, has the potential to add to that.

It may surprise some people that New Orleans has actually thrown the ball more than they’ve run it, and you can go 5-0 doing that only if the running game is operating at a very high capacity. Whether it’s been Mike Bell (just back from injury), Pierre Thomas (averaging 5.9 yards a carry) or Reggie Bush, these guys have provided the proper balance, and then some, for Brees to operate with.

When you talk about the New Orleans defense, you are talking about a team that has forced turnovers (11 interceptions) and does a very good job against the run (3.8 ypc allowed). Opponents have converted on only 27% of third downs against them, which has helped them ring up some wins in the NFL odds.

The one weakness about Miami’s Wildcat approach is that Henne and the run can’t be threats at the same time. That’s why Patrick White needs to become a bigger player at some point. As it is Patrick Cobbs, who works well in this offense, is out with an injury, and it is tough to replace him on short notice. While admiring what Henne has been able to do, we don’t know if he is ready to trade points here, especially when the opponent has proven it can pull off some stops.

New Orleans is not only 5-0, but all the wins have been by double digits. That’s pretty special. They’re worth a long look here, and so we’ll take the Saints and lay the 6.5 points in the BetUS NFL sports book betting odds.
