4 bold predictions for the New Orleans Saints in Week 4 vs. Lions

The New Orleans Saints have gotten off to a sluggish start, falling under .500 after their loss to the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football. They will look to bounce back in Week 4 against the Detroit Lions.

In an NFC South division where the Tampa Bay Buccaneers significantly improved in the offseason, the tight grip that the Saints held on this division is getting looser as the weeks go by. After defeating the Buccaneers in Week 1, the Saints have lost back to back games while the Buccaneers have won back to back games.

Granted, the New Orleans Saints have dealt with an unfortunate injury to one of their best offensive pieces in wideout, Michael Thomas — that could excuse the poor offensive play — but Drew Brees hasn’t looked as sharp as he used too. You cannot blame him as he is 41 years of age and in, what many believe to be, his last season.

With Michael Thomas expected to return to the field of play on Sunday, the Saints offense should improve and they should win this game. But, they are going up against a Detroit Lion team that typically plays their best football in the first month and a half of the season. Coming off a big win against the Arizona Cardinals, the Lions could easily be 2-1 if it weren’t for a drop in the end zone in Week 1 against the Bears. They will be riding their confidence and will look to continue building momentum in this week’s game against the Saints.

But, I have a hard time believing the Saints will lose three straight. Especially, in a game featuring the return of Brees’ favorite target, Michael Thomas, combined with the excellent play thus far of half back, Alvin Kamara.

Here are 4 things you should expect from the Saints in their game on Sunday.
