CSC Staff Picks, Week 3: Still trying to figure out who the Saints are

Are they the team we saw in Week 1 or Week 2?

The New Orleans Saints have shown us two different teams through the season’s first two weeks.

Most of the CSC thought the Saints would lose the opening game of the season against the Green Bay Packers, but then the Saints shocked the world and curb-stomped Aaron Rodgers and the Packers. Then in Week 2, the CSC staff was more bullish on the Saints chances, and most picked the Saints to beat the underdog Carolina Panthers. We remember what happened last week.

After an up-and-down two weeks, confidence in the Saints this week is mixed as the Saints head to New England to face Bill Belichick and the Patriots.

Here are our live-updating picks:

Last year, we had a celebrity guest join us each week to make picks for that week’s games. This year, we’re going to do something differently, where we’ll have a reader of Canal Street Chronicles make picks and track how our readers stack up with the staff here at CSC. This week, we have Daniel Roth (@RoththeRoth on Twitter) joining us to make picks to kick off the 2021 season.

Here are Daniel’s picks this week:

Panthers, Bills, Browns, Ravens, Titans, Chiefs, Saints, Falcons, Bengals, Cardinals, Broncos, Raiders, Rams, Vikings, 49ers, Eagles

Here’s how previous readers have done:
