The New Orleans Saints and the Washington football team meet on Sunday in Week 5 NFL action at FedExField. The New Orleans Saints are looking for a second road win to secure a game above a .500 record. The Washington football team are also looking for a win to move up to 3-2 this season.
The New Orleans Saints have won seven of their last nine road games. Jameis Winston completes 64% of his passes for 613 yards, eight touchdowns and two interceptions. Deonte Harris and Marquez Callaway combined for 301 receiving yards and two touchdowns while Juwan Johnson has six receptions. The New Orleans Saints’ rushing game is averaging 132.8 yards per game, and Alvin Kamara is leading the way with 297 yards on 78 carries. Defensively, New Orleans is allowing 17.3 points and 349.3 yards per game. Demario Davis leads the New Orleans Saints with 31 tackles, Tanoh Kpassagnon has two sacks and Marcus Williams has two interceptions.
The Washington football team have lost four of their last six home games. Taylor Heinicke completes 69.5% of his passes for 960 yards, eight touchdowns and three interceptions. Terry McLaurin and JD McKissic have 496 receiving yards and four touchdowns while Logan Thomas has 12 receptions. The Washington football ground game is averaging 103.3 yards per game, and Antonio Gibson leads the way with 253 yards and a touchdown. Defensively, Washington is allowing 30.5 points and 417.5 yards per game. Cole Holcomb leads the Washington soccer team with 41 tackles, Montez Sweat has three sacks and William Jackson III has an interception.
The Saints are 39-17 ATS in their last 56 road games and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 total games. The football team are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 games in October and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 games combined. The under is 6-1 in the Saints’ last 7 games overall. The top is 4-1 in the football team in the last 5 games in total. The Saints are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games.
I’m not entirely in favor of the Saints as the offense still has issues finishing practices and they are ranked 31st in attacking passing but the defense has been good enough to keep them in games. Washington’s football team have been hit or miss in four games, both of their wins came against bottom feeders, and a defense that was supposed to be good is 29th in total defense and 30th in goal defense. Usually I lean for the home team in these throwing contests, but I have a little more confidence in the Saints.
