Week 17 is here. The black and gold are still in the running for the number one seed. We need to take care of business against the Panthers. We also need the Bears to beat the Packers and Seattle to beat San Francisco. These are the Keys To The Contest.
This week we are going to be relying on Drew’s arm to win this game. The entire RB room is out due to covid. Ty Montgomery is moving from WR to start at RB. It is going to be up to the offensive line to protect Drew and give him time to dissect the defense.
Get Off The Field On Third Down
The offense isn’t the only side of the ball that is beat up. The defense is missing a few key names as well. It is going to be crucial that the defense ends drives when they have the chance. How the Saints fair on third down will play a huge part in determining who wins this game.
Play Clean Football
If there was ever a week to take care of the ball and limit penalties, this is it. With so many key pieces out, it is as important as ever for the Saints to be disciplined. The last thing we need is a key fumble or penalty to cost us the number one seed.
So, if the Saints can protect Drew, get off the field on third down, and play clean football, week 17 should be a good week for the Saints. Hold it.
