Patriots at Saints, 1
Line/OU: Patriots by 6; 56
New England got hammered in the fourth quarter at home by Kansas City in the league’s opener. Usually, the Patriots respond after a loss, especially one in which QB Tom Brady struggled. Since 2003, they are 42-6 in the regular season after a loss. “What you are in September is different from what you’re gonna be as the season goes on,” Brady says. “Obviously what we did (in the opener) is not good enough, by any means.” New Orleans had far too many deficiencies at Minnesota, including a suspect secondary.
