Saints vs. Packers Key Stats

New Orleans Saints

The New Orleans Saints need to figure out how to be better offensively as they are scoring just 18 points on 372 total yards per game. Derek Carr has struggled a bit to begin his Saints tenure as through two games, he is 44-of-69 (63.8 completion percentage) for 533 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions. Carr has found his favorite target in second-year wide receiver Chris Olave as he has 14 receptions on 21 targets for 198 yards (14.1 yards per catch) but has failed to find the end zone. This team has some serious talent and are surviving while they await Alvin Kamara to return to the field. 

The Saints defense is going to be without safety Marcus Maye as he was suspended during the week so that will be a big blow to the team. They are allowing 16 points on 277.5 total yards per game thus far. In their previous game on Monday night against the Carolina Panthers, this defense allowed 17 points on 239 total yards. New Orleans was able to put a lot of pressure on the opposing offense as they had four sacks and seven quarterback hits on Bryce Young. They also forced a turnover during the game so they have to continue applying pressure to be a force here. 

Green Bay Packers

The Green Bay Packers have been dealing with a bunch of offensive injuries but are still producing numbers as they score 31 points on 286 total yards per game. Quarterback Jordan Love has been one of the best quarterbacks in the sport in the early part of the season as he is 29-of-52 (55.8 completion percentage) for 396 yards with six touchdowns while running five times for 35 yards as well. If they can get either wide receiver Christian Watson or running back Aaron Jones, they will be in a great spot once they get healthy. 

The defense of the Green Bay Packers have to improve though as they are giving up 22.5 points on 393 total yards per game. They gave up 25 points to the Atlanta Falcons on 446 total yards in this game. They did pretty well as Atlanta went 6-of-15 on third down but was 3-of-4 on fourth down. The defense struggled to get to the quarterback as they only had one sack in the game. However, this defense should be excited as they held the Falcons to just going 2-of-5 in the red zone.
