opening their 2022 seasons against one another at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday at Mercedes-Benz Stadium. New Orleans was not at the top of the league last season, but they wrapped up the year with a winning record of 9-8. Meanwhile, last year was nothing to brag about for Atlanta (7-10), so the team is looking forward to a new start.
A pair of last-season offensive stats to keep in the back of your head while watching: The Saints ranked worst with respect to passing yards per game last season, where the squad accrued only 202.2 on average. Atlanta experienced some struggles of their own as they were second worst when it came to rushing yards per game last year, with the team coming up with only 85.4 on average. It’s possible one of these Achilles’ heels will wind up tripping the losing team up.
