Canal Street Chronicles: Saints vs. Lions Bold Predictions

Here are some bold predictions from the CSC staff for Week 13 of the regular season.

NFL: Las Vegas Raiders at New Orleans Saints Stephen Lew-USA TODAY Sports

Week 12 was a rough one for the New Orleans Saints (5-6) losing on the road to the Atlanta Falcons (5-6) which also temporarily (hopefully) cost them the top spot in the division too. This week, the Saints are back home in the dome to take on the Detroit Lions (8-3)

So, let’s take a look at some of the Canal Street Chronicles staff’s predictions for this week’s matchup.


  • Saints don’t score a touchdown, Grupe hits 4+ field goals.
  • Saints defense keeps them in this game, but the Lions offense explodes in 4Q to win by 14+.
  • Amon-Ra St. Brown torches the Saints for 100+ yards and a touchdown.


  • Jahmyr Gibbs gashes the Saints defense, rushing for over 100 yards and a touchdown
  • Derek Carr gets benched in the second half after being booed heavily for two turnovers in the first
  • Saints lose by double digits


  • Jahmyr Gibbs and David Montgomery look like the new “boom and zoom” running back duo, each having 50+ yards and a touchdown
  • Carr throws 2 touchdowns and 2 interceptions
  • Goff turns the ball over 3 times


  • Sam Laporta has a monster game
  • Saints struggle in the RZ again
  • Lions win on the road
