We have reached week two of the NFL season and there are a few games that look like big mismatches on paper. In this one the Cleveland Browns make the trip to Mercedes-Benz Superdome to take on the New Orleans Saints.
The last time these two teams played the Browns actually were the team that came out ahead in 2014 winning by a final score of 26-24.
The Cleveland Browns did about the most thing Cleveland Browns thing possible in their first game against the Pittsburgh Steelers. They had their long losing streak snapped by not winning a game, but playing to a tie with the Pittsburgh Steelers.
The Browns fell behind early against the Steelers but a late comeback in the 4th quarter helped them tie the game 21-21.
In overtime they had a chance to kick a field goal to win it and it was blocked, and that led to the game ending in a tie.
It was raining and that might have something to do with it but the offense really had a hard time getting going. Quarterback Tyrod Taylor finished the game throwing for 197 yards, a touchdown, and an interception.
In this game they will be facing a Saints defense that isn’t great and the offense needs to play a lot better because this will probably be a shootout.
The secondary also needs to create a few turnovers like they did against the Steelers to take some of the pressure off the offense.
New Orleans Saints
On the other side of this matchup is the New Orleans Saints who no one expected to be 0-1 after the first week of the season.
The Saints have a good offense but it was shown loud and clear that the defense has a lot of work to do. The Saints gave up 417 yards through the air and that led to a 48-40 defeat at the hands of Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
On the offensive side of the ball the Saints had no issue. Drew Brees led the way throwing for 439 yards, three touchdowns and zero interceptions.
The Saints also learned that they need to give Alvin Kamara most of the touches until Mark Ingram comes back because the other running backs can’t be trusted.
Kamara finished rushing for 29 yards and two touchdowns and also had 180 yards receiving and another touchdown. To win this game the Saints need to play better defense and Brees needs to continue his strong play as he tries to light up a Browns secondary which is shaky.

I really think there is only one place that we can take this pick because the Saints are hard to predict but I think this game will cover the over.
NFL Free Week 2 Score Prediction: Saints 34 – Browns 27
The Saints offense is going to have no issue scoring and the Saints defense is going to make sure the Browns have no issues scoring early.
I think in the end the Saints will win the game but it will be close. The over is the play in this one.
