NEW ORLEANS over Cleveland by 6
It’s over. Well almost. Cleveland’s 17-game losing streak ended with a tie against Pittsburgh last week when FG kicker Zane Gonzalez’s field goal attempt on the final play of overtime looked more like one of my drives when it was blocked instead. And it took a +5 advantage in turnovers just to be able to claim they kissed their sister. Note: the USA TODAY reports that NFL teams with a +5 or better advantage in turnovers in a game are Ironically, the Browns own half of the losses and the tie. So rest assured, Cleveland is not at all happy with last week’s result. On the other side of the coin, neither is New Orleans content after last week’s kick in the gut 48-40 home loss to Tampa Bay in which they combined for 88 points to set a record for an NFL regular-season opener last week. The Saints have not won a season opener since the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013 and have gone during the first two games of the season since. So while knee jerking to New Orleans would look to be en vogue this week we say not so fast my friends. There is this little matter of laying more than a touchdown with a defense that was ripped to shreds. Take it or leave it.
