Saints vs. Packers: Week 7 Live Game Thread

New, comments

The Saints march into Green Bay to take on the Packers in Week 7 and look to avoid falling back to .500.

New Orleans Saints v Green Bay Packers

The New Orleans Saints (3-2) and Green Bay Packers (4-2) face off for the 25th time in their franchise histories, with the Pack leading the all-time series 16-8. Since Sean Payton entered the picture in 2006, the Saints are 3-2 against the Packers with both losses coming in Green Bay in 2011 and 2012 (the Payton-less season).

Sunday’s matchup doesn’t exactly have the same draw with Aaron Rodgers out of the picture, but it’s at least entertaining to see the Brett Hundley era start. However, it’ll be against a much improved Saints defense. New Orleans finally broke a three-year curse of being unable to get over the .500 hump, and the key is to obviously not to go backwards.

Drew Brees and the Saints offense has had a ton of opportunity on third down this season, and will be a focal point of the day in order to escape Lambeau Field with a victory.
