It’s a pretty common occurrence for fans and analysts to make bold predictions about a game or season. If the prediction doesn’t come true, then that’s OK - you said it was bold! If it DOES come true, though... now you look like a genius!

So in that spirit, some of the Canal Street Chronicles writers were asked to share with me a bold prediction or two for the Week 14 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: back home in the Dome to host the former-division rival San Francisco 49ers.

Here are a few of the bold predictions provided by some of the contributors at Canal Street Chronicles:

NFL: New Orleans Saints at Atlanta Falcons Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports
  • Return to Dominance - Alvin Kamara rushes for over 100 yards and has over 200 yards of total offense. (Bob)
  • Is this a good thing? - Kamara has more receiving yards than Michael Thomas. (Butler)
  • Taysom Time - Taysom Hill has a rushing and receiving touchdown for the second week in a row. (Chad)
  • We can hope... - San Francisco fails to register a sack all game. (Conner)
  • Slow Day - San Francisco finishes with less than 269 total yards of offense. (Chad)

Here are my three bold predictions for the game:
