Expectations are not high for New Orleans this week
With the 2020 NFL season now entering Week 15, we’re continuing our new weekly bit where some of the staff here at Canal Street Chronicles tries to pick winners and losers for every NFL game each week.
In Week 14, it was generally a bad week for the New Orleans Saints. The Saints were unable to clinch a fourth-consecutive NFC South title after the Buccaneers beat the Vikings and the Saints lost to the Philadelphia Eagles. In the fight for the number one seed in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers were able to re-take the running for the top seed by beating the rival Detroit Lions.
This week, it doesn’t get any easier for the Saints, as most of the CSC staff expects New Orleans to lose back-to-game games, this time to the defending Super Bowl champs. Like last week, most expect the NFC South to still be up for grabs, with the Buccaneers expected to beat the lowly Atlanta Falcons, and the Packers are a unanimous pick to beat the Carolina Panthers and maintain control of the NFC.
Here are our live-updating picks:
We have another guest this week joining us to make selections, and this week, and this week it’s Farrah Yvette, Emmy-winning Executive Producer of WAFB in Baton Rouge, and avid New Orleans Saints fan.
