The Browns played rather well in their 2018 debut. However, it’s no understatement to say that luck played a big part in their tie. After all, the Browns only gained 374 total yards on the day while the Steelers were 6 yards shy of 500. Granted, the Steelers do wield one of the most explosive and dynamic offenses in the NFL. They were also without Le’Veon Bell, one of their greatest offensive asses. Just imagine how many yards Cleveland would’ve given up without Bell in the lineup. Unfortunately for Cleveland, they have another explosive offense on the horizon. Albeit, the Saints also have a terrible defense. With that in mind, the Browns can engage in a shootout and attempt to lock up another tie on the season. But considering that the Browns are 4-1 SU in their last 5 matchups against the Saints, it’s clear Cleveland could be coming out on top this weekend.
Players to Watch: Tyrod Taylor (197 passing yards, 1 TD, 1 INT), Carlos Hyde (62 rushing yards, 1 TD, 0 F), and Jarvis Landry (106 receiving yards, 0 TD, 7 REC).
New Orleans Saints
The Saints opened up their season with a shootout but one they ended up losing. The Bucs got the best of New Orleans 48-40 in Week 1, setting the Saints back in the NFC South. The NFC South is projected as being one of the toughest divisions in football this season seeing as how they had 3 playoff contenders last year. Having said that, it’s clear the Saints need to do all they can to avoid an 0-2 start. Luckily for Brees and the Saints, the Browns defense looked rather week in their debut. Ultimately we can expect Brees and the entire Saints’ offense to have a monstrous outing this weekend. Doesn’t guarantee they’ll come out on top however, not with the defense they’re currently sporting.
Players to Watch: Drew Brees (439 passing yards, 3 TD, 0 INT), Alvin Kamara (29 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Michael Thomas (180 receiving yards, 1 TD, 16 REC).
