Having faced two slumping teams in their last two games, the Jets are facing one of the best teams in the NFL this weekend as they head to New Orleans to face the Saints. However, the Saints have lost two of their last three after having had an eight game winning streak snapped so they'll be looking to bounce back in a big way.
The Saints have been led by Drew Brees as usual and Cameron Jordan has been having a terrific season on defense, but it's the emergence of two rookies that has really elevated them into being a contender this year. Cornerback Marshon Lattimore and running back Alvin Kamara are both candidates for rookie of the year honors. However, both have been dealing with some injury issues, as Lattimore has been bothered by an ankle injury and Kamara is still in concussion protocol.
The Jets are apparently 16-point underdogs for Sunday's game. After McCown's injury, the Jets may of course be resetting their priorities to some extent. However, one pattern for the Jets this year is that they seem to have been at their best when expectations are lowest, so perhaps the game will be more competitive than expected.
