Jared Goff QB vs. Derek Carr QB

Goff has found his groove in Detroit, directing an efficient passing attack that ranks 6th in yards per game. With 18 TDs against just 8 INTs, Goff has the Lions offense operating at a high level. His chemistry with WR Amon-Ra St. Brown, who is averaging 99 receiving yards per contest, will be tough for the Saints’ 18th-ranked pass defense to contain.

Meanwhile, Carr has failed to meet expectations since joining New Orleans this season. His uninspiring 89.8 passer rating ranks 25th among starting QBs, and the Saints passing offense sputters along at just 223 yards per contest. Carr will need to improve his efficiency against a Detroit pass defense that allows the 4th-fewest yards per game.

Detroit Lions’ Offensive Playmakers Poised for Big Day

Between Goff’s accurate passing and the dual threat of RB D’Andre Swift, the Lions have too much firepower for the Saints’ struggling defense. Swift is averaging 75 rushing yards per game and has found the end zone 5 times in just 7 contests this year. With New Orleans giving up the 6th-most points to opposing running backs, expect Swift to produce in this matchup.

Goff also has the benefit of throwing to one of the league’s top receivers in St. Brown. His 12.1 yards per catch and 5 TDs lead the team, and he should have little trouble getting open against the Saints’ underwhelming secondary. The Lions offense is set up nicely to put points on the board in New Orleans.

Kamara and Olave Lead Depleted New Orleans Saints Offense

With injuries depleting their receiver corps, the Saints will lean heavily on RB Alvin Kamara and impressive rookie Chris Olave. Kamara is the lone bright spot in a rush offense ranked just 20th in yards per carry. His versatility as both runner and receiver will be needed to attack a Detroit defense ranked 10th in opponent rushing yards per game.

Olave has also been productive in his first NFL season, leading the Saints with 657 receiving yards. With veteran WR Jarvis Landry likely out for Week 13, Olave will take over WR1 duties against a Lions secondary that can be exploited through the air. Still, Carr will need to deliver accurate passes under pressure, as Detroit brings a fierce pass rush.

With all their offensive talent, Detroit is understandably favored on the road in New Orleans. The Lions moneyline odds sit at a very backable -154, while the game total is set at 44.5 points. Expect Detroit to take care of business as a road favorite.
