NFL Picks Week 2: A Greatly Exaggerated Demise

Chuck Cook-USA TODAY Sports

Week 1 featured some fantastic games and wild finishes. Now we set our sights on Week 2 of the 2021 NFL Season.

The New Orleans Saints travel to Charlotte to face the Carolina Panthers in their first divisional matchup of the season. The Saints have dominated the NFC South with four-consecutive division titles and the path to an incredible fifth-consecutive title starts with a win in Carolina. The Panthers look to win consecutive home games to start the...

Film Study: Breakdown of every Jameis Winston dropback in Week 1

Bob Self/Florida Times-Union via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Jameis simply took what the defense gave him for the majority of this game, and that’s about all we can ask from him.

While five touchdowns, no picks and an otherwise spotless stat line is enough to suffice some, we all know that the box score only tells a piece of the story when it comes to a quarterback’s performance — so I went back and took a look at every Jameis Winston dropback from the Green Bay Packers game on...

Crazy stat illustrates difference between Jameis Winston, Drew Brees

Simply put, Winston is capable of doing things that Brees could not. That became evident when Winston completed a 55-yard touchdown pass to Deonte Harris in Sunday’s 38-3 win over the Green Bay Packers.

[Film analysis] Saints offensive line instrumental in Jameis Winston’s big day vs. Packers

Bob Self/Florida Times-Union via Imagn Content Services, LLC

It wasn’t news that the Saints would have one of the league’s best lines, but they put the NFL on notice Sunday

One game into the season, Jameis Winston is 28th in the NFL in passing yards. He also leads the league in touchdowns. Such is the duality of the New Orleans Saints offense, which proved to be brutally efficient on Sunday in a 38-3 walloping of the Green Bay Packers. Winston threw for 148 yards — with 55 of...

The Saints are predicted to keep things rolling against a divisional opponent.

The New Orleans Saints showed they were ready for Week 1 of the NFL regular season

Whether it’s playing a “home” game in Florida, the retirement of Drew Brees, or a roster that lost multiple starters in the offseason from the year before, it didn’t matter, as the team took care of business against the Green Bay Packers. In doing so, the Saints proved most of the...

The division had a strong showing in the NFL’s opening week

While New Orleans Saints fans are still sky high after their Week 1 38-3 annihilation of the Green Bay Packers, there are a couple of other teams in the division whose fanbases are feeling good about themselves as well. Here is a look around the NFC South after Week 1.

Saints Week 2 Power Rankings: Saints climb heading into showdown with Panthers

Bob Self/Florida Times-Union via Imagn Content Services, LLC

Rumors of the Saints’ demise were greatly exaggerated.

The NFL is a fickle place. You can go into Week 1 completely sure that a team is nestled neatly in the No. 15-20 spot, almost in playoff contention but not quite, and then watch that team utterly trounce a Super Bowl favorite 38-3 while holding a Hall of Fame quarterback to under 150 yards passing.

So it was for the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, who obliterated Aaron...

With the offseason behind us, the New Orleans Saints headed to Jacksonville to kick off the season against the Green Bay Packers. Many NFL analysts picked the Packers to demolish the Saints and capitalize on their new interception-prone quarterback Jameis Winston. Much to...

Can Jameis Winston steal the 2021 NFL MVP?

Crazier things have happened in the NFL.

When Jameis Winston first signed with the New Orleans Saints in the 2020 offseason, the national media wrote Winston off as player left with no other suitor of interest in free agency, forced to take a backup role to a future Hall of Famer. Maybe they were right.

In any event, Winston acknowledged he needed to put his “ego aside” and make the decision that was best for his long-term football future. The...
