Michael Thomas should get what he wants. Minnesota’s without their top 2 slot CBs and Rhodes has been pretty bad this year. Minnesota’s 3rd down defense on the road was 27th in the league and Minnesota gave up 154 yards and 116 yards to Aaron Jones.

Brees and Payton will be aggressive and I like the Saints’ chances for putting up a few scores in bunches and forcing Cousins to play from behind. Lattimore can limit Diggs and the Vikings will need huge games from Cousins, Thielen, and Cook. Cook played when Minnesota lost at Seattle, Chicago, and Kansas City to Matt Moore. The Saints have a lot of depth in the front 7 even with a few injuries and the same for the secondary. Cousins is 0-15 in his career against teams that finished with 12 wins or more.
