In turnover margin the Saints are even at 0 and Denver is -3.
The game is at home.
I think Denver can win this game, but I think it will be close. The deal breaker is the pass rush. Denver has 2 pass rushers to New Orleans' 0. I think our scoring defense is skewed by the turnovers in our own territory which I expect will start to decrease as the season goes on. I think we win by 7 or so.
I have a bad feeling about this game. Twice this week, I have seen a fleur de lice or whatever they call the Saints logo. It's an omen. I hope I'm wrong though.
