We have reached week five of the NFL season and this is a matchup between two teams who really could use a win as they try to prove they are for real.
The Washington Redskins make the trip to Mercedes-Benz Stadium to take on the New Orleans Saints. Both teams come into this game with only one loss.
The Washington Redskins have had an interesting season but they come into this game with a 2-1 record and are coming in rested off a bye.
They have had wins over the Green Bay Packers and the Arizona Cardinals but that is sandwiched around a loss against a Colts team that had their only win in that game.
Alex Smith has been good so far this year, but the biggest surprise for the Redskins has been Adrian Peterson who looked like a guy that might have his career end after last year.
So far this season he has rushed for 236 yards and three touchdowns. He has also been a force out of the backfield, something that hasn’t always been the case during his career.
On the defensive side of the ball the Saints haven’t been great, and that is going to need to change in this game.
They are going to need to find a way to slow down the Saints, especially Alvin Kamara. If they can find a way to make Brees get the ball to someone else they might have a chance.
It’s still going to be hard but that is going to be the best chance they have.
New Orleans Saints
On the other side of this matchup is the New Orleans Saints who honestly haven’t looked pretty so far this year, but they still come into this game with a 3-1 record.
The Saints are led by Drew Brees, but Alvin Kamara has had quite the season and he is really key for this team’s success.
Against the Giants he rushed for 134 yards and three touchdowns. He also did a nice job out of the backfield having 47 reception yards.
On the defensive side of the ball the Saints have been flat out awful The offense can be good but for the success in the playoffs they need to step up.
This would be a good game for them to try and do that. They need to slow down Adrian Peterson and make life rough on Alex Smith.
