NFL Game Preview: Green Bay Packers vs. New Orleans Saints - Date: 9/27/2020 Sep 24, 2020NEW ORLEANS Unless Drew Brees musters his first vintage performance of 2020, the Saints could struggle to keep up with Aaron Rodgers and the recently potent Packers. Football Predictions. The first two weeks of this season have seen two of the finest quarterbacks in NFL history on divergent paths. Sports Monitor. The Packers (2-0) are scoring more than 40 points per game. Rodgers has passed for six touchdowns and has yet to be intercepted. Good Sports Handicappers. The Saints (1-1) have played below their usual standard offensively and Brees, the NFL's all-time leader in yards and touchdowns passing, has been fielding questions about how his arm is holding up at age 41. ''I feel good, borderline great,'' Brees said, dismissing the notion that his relatively few downfield attempts is a sign of trouble. ''There are many statistics I do not pay one bit of attention to, and (yards per attempt) would be one,'' Brees continued. ''I am focused on putting us in positions to succeed, making great decisions, both in the run game and the pass game. . . . I don't care how we do it. I honestly don't. I just want to win. '' Packers coach Matt Lafleur is disinclined to read much into Brees' slow start. For him, the sample size is too small. ''That is an anomaly that doesn't happen very often and it's just a matter of time before he gets it rolling like we're all accustomed to,'' Lafleur predicted. ''This is one of the most consistent - not only him as the quarterback, but one of the most consistent offenses over however many years that he and (coach) Sean (Payton) have been together. ''They're always at the top in the league in almost every category,'' Lafleur continued, adding that defenses should never let their guard down against New Orleans. ''As soon as you do, he's going to go out there and dice you and hang 45 on you. '' The Saints have indeed led the NFL in total offense six times, finished in the top five in five other seasons, and have never ranked worse than ninth since Brees and Payton joined forces in 2006. But, for the moment, New Orleans ranks 21st in total offense in 2020, while Rodgers and the Packers lead the league. ''We've had multiple plays where we have guys that are wide, wide open,'' Rodgers marveled. ''A lot of that is due to the minor schematic changes we made in the offseason and implemented in training camp. ''When I'm playing on time and in rhythm, the offense I think can be more efficient as long as we have guys open,'' Rodgers continued. ''The two have been really correlated this year. '' AARON VS. ALVINGreen Bay's Aaron Jones rushed for a career-high 168 yards in a 42-21 victory over Detroit and leads the NFL in rushing (234) and yards from scrimmage (312). New Orleans' Alvin Kamara ranks sixth in yards from scrimmage (241) and has found the end zone twice in each of the Saints' two games. HOBBLED TOP TARGETSThere were questions about the health of top receivers on both teams this week. Two-time All-Pro Michael Thomas, who set an NFL record with 149 catches last season, sat out the Saints' loss in Las Vegas on Monday night with an ankle sprain and did not take the field when the Saints returned to practice on Thursday. Packers receiver Davante Adams, who already has 17 catches for 192 yards and two TDs this season, left last Sunday's victory over Detroit with a hamstring injury. PENALTY PROBLEMSThe Saints have been plagued by 248 yards in penalties, including 129 yards in their Week 2 loss to the Raiders. ''The good news is, it's only two weeks in and it'll be a lot more concerning here going forward, if it continues,'' Payton said. ''So, we've got to work harder at it. We've got to coach it better and reduce those fouls. '' FRIENDS TO FOESPackers guard Elgton Jenkins and Saints reserve defensive back J. T. Gray are good friends who grew up together in Mississippi and are former Mississippi State teammates. ''We've been playing football with each other since peewee and college,'' Jenkins said. ''Just being down there and me seeing him play, him seeing me play and not being on the same team, so hopefully (we'll be) just going down there and putting on a show and we'll chop it up after the game. '' CHEERING SECTIONThe Saints announced on Thursday they they'd received approval from state and local officials to allow about 750 family of players, coaches and staff to watch the game in the Superdome from field-level seating behind the New Orleans bench. They will join inactive players who formed a cheering section in a Week 1 victory over Tampa Bay in the Superdome, which was held with no fans. --- Sports Writer Steve Megargee in Green Bay, Wisconsin, contributed to this report. ---More NFL: https://apnews. com/NFL and https://twitter. com/-NFL
