Three Things to Watch

1. Can Leonard Fournette run successfully against the Saints’ front seven?
Fournette has served as the key component in the Jaguars’ running attack. His 95 rushing attempts are more than three times the combined total of the rest of his teammates. He has rushed for 512 yards, more than twice as much as all the other Jaguars combined.


Final Analysis

So far, the Saints have exceeded the expectations of the most wildly optimistic of their fans. Drew Brees was diagnosed as needing at least six weeks to recover from his thumb injury. Realistically, the fans hoped to split the six games during his absence. After three straight wins, the Saints have already achieved that goal at the minimum.
