Friday September 11th, 2015

The New Orleans Saints enter the season without their top receiving target from 2014 after trading Jimmy Graham to the Seahawks over the off-season. Drew Brees is back for his 15th season in the league after a posting a solid 97.0 QB Rating last season. New Orleans also released its top pass-rusher Junior Galette, and will be looking for big contributions from rookies Stephone Anthony and Hau'oli Kikaha on defense.

The Cardinals have gone 13-2 in the last 15 games started by Carson Palmer. The 12-year veteran played in just six games last year due to a knee injury. Fresh off of ACL surgery, a lot of the team’s success will ride on the 35-year-old quarterback. Andre Ellington and rookie David Johnson will look to improve upon a dismal season on the ground in 2014 that saw the team rank dead last in the league in yards per carry.
