CSC Staff Picks, Week 1: Confidence not high for the New Orleans Saints

The Saints are predicted to start the 2021 season off on a difficult note.

The New Orleans Saints are ready for Week 1 of the NFL season, even if that game takes place in Jacksonville instead of New Orleans.

Whether it’s playing a “home” game in Florida, the retirement of Drew Brees, or a roster that lost multiple starters in the offseason from the year before, confidence is not high for the Saints to upset Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers.

On the other hand, the CSC staff unanimously believes in Tom Brady and the Buccaneers’ chances against the Dallas Cowboys tomorrow evening.

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 Troy Hebert (@TroyHebert_ on Twitter) joining us to make picks to kick off the 2021 season.

Here are Troy’s picks this week:

Buccaneers, Eagles, Bills, Bengals, 49ers, Titans, Seahawks, Chargers, Panthers, Texans, Chiefs, Dolphins, Packers, Broncos, Rams, Raiders

Even Troy struggles to think the Saints will beat the Packers on Sunday.

Thanks to Tallysight for helping keep track with all of our picks each week and offering this super awesome graphic.
