Why San Francisco 49ers Will Win
The passing game still works.
It might not have a big downfield offense, and it’s missing some key parts – the entire team is – but even with Nick Mullens taking over the quarterbacking reins, the O is still getting well over 250 yards per game through the air.
Combine that with a ground game that’s doing just enough to close – the team leads the NFL in touchdown runs and has only allowed five scores – but …
Why New Orleans Saints Will Win
New Orleans isn’t giving up a thing on the ground.
Eight yards. That’s how many Tampa Bay was able to gain last week against a Saint D that came up with one of the season’s most dominant performances.
The Saint offense was able to spread the ball around well, the offense put up 420 yards without getting Michael Thomas involved all that much. On both sides of the ball, the pressure will keep coming.
Fantasy Football Player To Watch
RB Latavius Murray, New Orleans
New Orleans won’t want to get quirky here. It’ll want to control the ball on offense and grind-it-out with short passes and a heavy dose of Murray. Although he’s end-zone dependent for his big weeks, keep in mind that he received more carries than Alvin Kamara last week against the Bucs. Here comes the end to the scoring slump.
What’s Going To Happen
New Orleans won’t be able to repeat the brilliance of Sunday night against the Bucs, but it’ll be workmanlike and sound on both sides of the ball – helped by being +2 in turnover margin – to push through.
