Two teams who have been very disappointing this year meet Sunday afternoon in Arizona.
Both the Saints and Cardinals have certainly performed well under par this year and come in losers in 3 of their last 4.
New Orleans Saints
It’s very odd to see the Saints not putting up points.
QB Drew Brees has struggled over the past two games, as the Saints enter play losers in both after scoring just 24 points combined.
New Orleans is one of the best in the game when it comes to putting points on the board as they average nearly 28 points per game. The recent trend comes from a lack of blocking for Brees, as he simply doesn’t have much time in the backfield.
The run game also has to pick it up to help the cause out. RBs Mark Ingram and Tim Hightower combined for just 45 yards in the loss on Sunday and haven’t been able to pick up any steam lately.
Their inability to run has put all the pressure on Drew Brees and the pass game, forcing them into some tight spots.
The Cardinals need wins to start piling up quickly if they hope to crash the postseason party.
The Cardinals have dropped 3 of their last 4 and come in off a disappointing loss to Miami on Sunday. It looked as if the early start time combined with the travel across the country did this team in.
Arizona dug themselves a steep hole and after tying things up late, saw the Dolphins kick a game winning chip shot field goal as time expired.
This offense has only seen production from RB David Johnson this year.
Johnson leads the league with yardage from scrimmage, as he has racked up 1830 total yards per game. Look for him to get plenty of touches here early on against a weak Saints defense.
What makes Johnson so threatening is his ability to go out and play as a receiver from the backfield.
