The New Orleans Saints and Denver Broncos are set to face off in NFL Week 10 action. It is a game that may look fairly easy to predict on the outside looking in, but the Saints are not the team that has struggled over the past few seasons. New Orleans is back on the map in the NFC and are not going to be an easy win for the Broncos.
There is no denying that Denver is once again one of the best teams in the AFC. Denver holds a 6-3 record after a tough loss on Sunday Night Football to the Oakland Raiders. They have one of the best defenses in the NFL once again this season, but their offense has had some major struggles.
New Orleans, on the other hand, has been extremely happy with Drew Brees’ superstar-caliber play this season. Sean Payton has led his team to a 4-4 record and has had some huge victories. They are still not considered to be a serious playoff threat in the NFC by most but are starting to work their way into the conversation.
Looking ahead to this week’s game, there are a lot of things to keep an eye on. Denver is favored to pull out the win, but the Saints aren’t going to go down without a fight.
All of that being said, what bold predictions can be made for the Saints vs. Broncos game in NFL Week 10 action?
Drew Brees Rips Off 300 Yards, Four Touchdowns
Even though the Broncos have one of the best defenses in the NFL, Drew Brees will have a huge game. He has continually proved himself against good defenses and will do so again this week. Brees will throw for 300 yards and four touchdowns throughout the course of the game.
Devontae Booker Totals 120 Yards, Two Touchdowns
Denver has to be excited about rookie running back Devontae Booker. He has taken over the starting running back role after C.J. Anderson went down with an injury. Booker will continue his impressive rookie season with 120 total yards this week to go along with two touchdowns against a weak New Orleans’ defense.
New Orleans Forces Three Turnovers
New Orleans has a very porous defense, but they have some players capable of making plays. That will be the case this week, as they will give up big numbers but force three turnovers. Trevor Siemian isn’t the best quarterback in the NFL, and the Saints will find ways to force the Denver offense to make mistakes.
Denver Sacks Drew Brees Five Times
Von Miller and the Denver defense is going to do everything they can to put pressure on Drew Brees. He is one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL and will shred the secondary if they can’t pressure him. Brees is going to put up a big game, but he will get sacked at least five times while recording those big numbers.
New Orleans Once Again Pulls Out a Surprising Win
New Orleans may not be expected to win this week’s game, but they don’t care about the media’s predictions. Drew Brees and company will come out looking to prove a point, and they will do just that. They will pull out a tough victory over the Broncos to improve to 5-4 on the season, while the Broncos will move to 6-4 with the loss.
Expect to see these two teams put up big offensive numbers this week. New Orleans has a weak defense, and the Broncos will have a difficult time stopping Brees. Both teams will fight until the final whistle, but New Orleans will find a way to come out on top on the scoreboard.
