The New Orleans Saints are 2-0 in prime-time games at home and they’ll look to add another W to that column on Monday night vs. the Houston Texans in their regular season opener. Drew Brees and Co. are coming off their 2nd consecutive NFC Title and have high expectations for the 2019 season-- a sentiment that is widely shared considering their preseason power rankings across the board. NFL Daily host Carter Bryant reveals how the Saints stacked up against all 32 NFL teams (Spoiler alert: they’re in the top 5).
Ezekiel Elliott got paid in a BIG way with his 6-year, $90 MM extension. So what does that mean for Alvin Kamara who is set to be a free agent next season? Well, it appears to set Kamara up to become a $100MM man himself. While the Saints’ offense doesn’t necessarily lean as heavily on Kamara as the Cowboys do with Zeke, Carter expects Alvin to get the bag. Still on his rookie contract, he’ll make $807K this season. Could we see the RB market reset yet again? Stay tuned.

IN THE VIDEO ABOVE, Drew Brees has won Super Bowl MVP, is the all time leader in career passing yards, but he has never taken home NFL MVP. If that shocked you, don’t worry! You’re not alone. Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson was studying the Saints QB this offseason and called it “mind-blowing” that considering Brees’ consistent production that he has never won Most Valuable Player. Could this finally be the year that the 40-year old takes home the award? He’ll get a chance to prove that he’s worthy on prime-time week 1 when the Saints face off against the Houston Texans.
Here are Carter’s 3 keys to the game vs. the Texans:
1. Force the Texans to run the ball
2. Quick passing attack
3. Solid Special Teams
