Green Bay Packers

New Orleans is coming to the game here with a loss in the opening week of the preseason. The loss was far from impressive for the most part with it coming against the Houston Texans. The final score in the disappointing showing for the Saints was 17-13.

Saints Offense

Offensively the passing attack for the Saints was not that bad. The Saints used 2 quarterbacks and they went a combined 20/27 for 140 yards and a touchdown with a pick. The Saints have a total of 5 sacks in the game and lost 32 yards. The rushing offense for the Saints was decent with 37 carries for 130 yards, but no scores.

Saints Defense

Defensively the Saints have to work on their pass defense giving up 19 completions in 29 attempts. The Saints gave up 176 yards and 2 touchdowns, but did end up getting 3 picks. The Saints only managed to get 1 sack with a loss of 3 yards. The rushing defense for New Orleans was good, but gave up 99 yards on 24 carries in the game.

Green Bay ended up losing in their opening game of the preseason. The loss was a high scoring game, though, which definitely hit the over. The Packers scored 21 points and the 49ers scored 28 points to secure the win for San Francisco.

Packers Offense

When it came to the offense the Packers wen 19/32 for 296 yards and 3 touchdowns with 3 picks with 2 quarterbacks. The quarterbacks were only sacked 1 time for a 3 yard loss. Running the ball for Green Bay was done 34 times for 141 yards and no scores at all.

Packers Defense

Defensively the Packers faced a total of only 22 passes which were completed 15 times for 212 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Packers did get 3 sacks for a total of 19 losses. When the 49ers ran the ball the 49ers picked up 116 yards on a total of 32 carries, so the Packers running defense was not that horrible on the day.

New Orleans Saints at Green Bay Packers Odds: Saints +3, Packers -3

Over/Under Odds: 39.5

Saints at Packers Pick: Green Bay Packers -3, Over 39.5

Odds from 

New Orleans did not really show up that well defensively in the opening week of the preseason. Look for those types of struggles to continue in this game here as the Packers looked very impressive offensively in the game against the 49ers who actually have a fairly solid and robust defense. Still, I do see the Saints scoring at least once in the game, but with the dominating force of the Packers offense the total will go over and the Packers are able to cover.
