New Orleans Saints vs Las Vegas Raiders Predictions

While Michael Thomas' unavailability does come as huge blow to the Saints they will gladly take the matchup versus an inexperienced Raiders secondary which conceded 30 points to the Carolina Panthers.

The Las Vegas Raiders on the other hand will have their work cut out versus a Saints secondary boasting the likes of defensive maulers Cam Jordan, Demario Davis & lockdown corners Marshon Lattimore & Janoris Jenkins.

Prediction: New Orleans Saints to win
