The defending Super Bowl champs are off to another strong start with a 2-1 record that includes a 36-7 pasting of Carolina last Thursday night as a 2.5-point road underdog. This followed a wild 41-34 come-from-behind victory over Tampa Bay as a nine-point favorite at home and an opening-day 24-17 loss to Dallas as a 3.5-point home favorite.
Eli Manning has also picked-up where he left off last season with one big play after another when his team needs one the most.
If there was ever any question of head coach Sean Payton’s value to his team before, it is surely been answered in the Saints shocking 0-3 start to the season. They have now lost to Washington, Carolina, and Kansas City as favorites in each game while getting outscored by a total of 19 points.
It has been a mess so far on both sides of the ball. All-Pro quarterback Drew Brees has completed less than 55 percent of his passes and has been picked off five times after throwing just 14 interceptions all last season.
