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 1 of the regular season for the New Orleans Saints: a the first Monday Night Football game of the year, hosting the Houston Texans. This is their chance to look brilliant!

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

  • Vonn’s Big Game - Vonn Bell records a pick-six. (Bob)
  • Stellar Debut - Deonte Harris has a rushing and return touchdown. (Conner)
  • Comeback - Saints are down a touchdown at half but go on to win by double-digits. (Kade)
  • Lattimore Island - Saints defense holds DeAndre Hopkins to under 40 receiving yards. (Don)
  • Sack City - Saints defense records 6 sacks. (Bob)
  • Hot Start - Jared Cook finishes the game with a touchdown and more receiving yards than Michael Thomas. (Conner)
  • Sophomore Leap - Marcus Davenport records 2.5 sacks. (Brenden)

Here are my three bold predictions for the game:
