Last week: 6 (-1)

Record: 0-1

It’s not quite time to hit the panic button in New Orleans. They’ll get better as the season goes on. After the offseason they had, it’s understandable if they struggle out of the gate and if anyone can get through this, it’s a Drew Brees led team. However, they need to win the division to go anywhere in the playoffs because I don’t trust them to win a road playoff game and Atlanta looks like the better team right now. Those two divisional matchups with the Falcons could decide their season. Up next is a young Carolina team in Carolina. They can’t afford to go 0-2 so they’ll have to get over their road woes.
