The Saints will be lucky to score more than two touchdowns if at all!
The Lions will be the first hard game the Saints will see in their 2015-2015 season from their performance in the red zone both offensively and defensively will be a deciding factor if the Saints are feeling lazy after their bye-week. I expect a ton of points to be put up by both offenses, it's mainly up to the defense, especially the secondary team to get their stuff together to hold onto the win. I predict a high scoring close game of Saints: 38 to Lions: 31.
