In their meeting in the 2014 season it was Detroit posting the 24-23 victory at home but the Saints covered the spread as a +1 ½ point betting underdog. The Saints had a difficult time in that loss executing in the red zone going just 1 of 3 inside the 20.

Detroit will enter on a two game losing streak after a 21-14 defeat at St Louis last week as a -3 point favorite. Lions gave up just 14 points on defense and a Rams interception return went for a touchdown. They had a difficult time containing the Rams rookie running back Todd Gurley who rushed for 140 yards on 16 carries and had two rushing touchdowns. The team really couldn’t get their offense clicking in 2014 as they averaged just 20.5 points per game ranking 24th in the league. Like in most recent seasons the running game never materialized. Detroit ran for 79 yards per game ranking 32nd and last in the league. The defense has digressed to 28th in the league in scoring defense by allowing 25.8 points per game.

New Orleans has lost valuable pieces to their defense in recent seasons but still carry the second ranked offense in the league. The defense has dragged at the bottom against the run and in points allowed. They are 30th and third worst against the pass.
