The New Orleans Saints and the Washington Football Team will face off on Sunday for a Week 5 matchup in the nation’s capital. The Saints came up short in a 21-21 overtime loss to the previously winless New York Giants. Meanwhile, the Washington Football Team got an inspiring 34-30 win over the Atlanta Falcons. The latest NFL odds and lines have the Saints as the slight -2 road favorites, with the point total set at 44½.
Back for their first game at the packed Caesars Superdome in New Orleans, the Saints fell to the Giants. Through four games, quarterback Jameis Winston has played well, tossing eight touchdowns with just two interceptions and not fumbling once. However, coach Sean Payton has elected to utilize dual-threat QB Taysom Hill as a change of pace. The quarterbacks have thrown for just 144 yards per game, second to last in the league.
After allowing 27 points and 402 passing yards to the grisly Giants offense, the Saints have now permitted over 283 yards per game in the air. Be that as it may, the defense has carried the team to two wins, ranking 10th in total defense and fifth in total points. They’ll look to bounce back against Washington.
The Football Team got a comeback victory and stellar play from quarterback Taylor Heinicke to secure its second victory. Heinicke bounced back from his worst start and looked electric, throwing for three touchdowns. When the game was on the line, the offense never quit and got two late touchdown drives to beat Atlanta.
Washington’s hyped defense surrendered 30 points to the Falcons. The secondary has been a liability in coverage and the defensive line hasn’t consistently pressured the quarterback. Chase Young and company will look to break out against the Saints.
