Sunday Is For Football
The final 2 games of the 3rd week of the preseason will be on Sunday! On tap for Sunday is The New Orleans Saints @ The Houston Texans at 4 pm. Then at 8 pm with get The Minnesota Vikings @ The San Francisco 49ers. Both of these games should give us a good dose of Sunday Is For Football!
I am picking The Saints over The Texans, for one reason and one reason only: Coach Sean Payton is back! We will finally get to see the chemistry between Drew Brees and Coach Payton in full force once again. Although not a huge fan of Rob Ryan I am curious to see his starting defense in action. This will not be an easy win, especially with The Texans defense!
Now for The Vikings/49ers Game– that one is a bit harder to pick. Both teams have top-notch defenses. I have not seen anything from Vikings QB Ponder to have faith in them to lead the team. However, they do have Adrian Peterson, so you can never count them out. Peterson can carry the team on his back for a win anytime he steps on the field! The 49ers have some questions at the wide receiver position, but they have enough play makers that it should not be a huge problem. I will take the 49ers in this one because of Colin Kaepernick’s ability to operate the pistil offense.
