The safety should make his debut during this game, and he was signed to provide an immediate lift to the New Orleans defense. The Saints are known for an explosive offense but, save for their Super Bowl-winning season, defense has been an issue at times.

Brees has missed the first two preseason games due to an oblique injury, but he should be back for this contest. Don't expect Brees to see too much time in this game, just enough to get him acclimated to the field. However, he should produce in the limited time he will see.

You wonder how long before Ahmad Bradshaw becomes the No. 1 back and Richardson becomes an afterthought.

Don't be surprised if you see at least 50 points in this game, possibly more. Both teams' defenses are stronger but the offenses are explosive. If this prediction doesn't come true, then the game will be very low scoring. There simply is no middle ground here.
