One week after losing Drew Brees to a thumb injury along with a tough loss to the Rams, the Saints were looking to make a statement on the road in Week 3 against the Seattle Seahawks in regards to still having what it takes to be a top contender in the NFC.
After coming up short of the Super Bowl in each of the previous two seasons, New Orleans was similar to Los Angeles when it came to entering the new season as one of the early favorites.
By defeating the Seahawks the way they did, the Saints made a statement of showing this team can still find a way to win without Brees moving forward since Seattle in general is never an easy place for opponents to play.
Between Teddy Bridgewater doing an unbelievable job at managing the game to Alvin Kamara and Michael Thomas finally finding the end zone for the first time in 2019, New Orleans is the last team to sleep on.
Bridgewater continuing to keep the Saints in great shape until Brees can return certainly won’t be easy, but at least with a 2-1 record, New Orleans is back in control when it comes to the NFC South standings.
Los Angeles may not have to worry about New Orleans until January if these two teams happen to meet for a second time, but if this were to happen, there’s no questions the Saints would have revenge on their minds from Week 2 on top of last winter.
