Around the country, here’s the buzz on the Chargers and Saints Sunday Night Football game on NBC:
ESPN Expert Analysts: 11-3 Saints-Chargers.
NBC’s ProFootball Talk: Mark Florio: Saints 34-24. Michael David Smith: Saints 30-20.
Yahoo! Sports: 3-1 Saints (only Les Carpenter picked the Chargers to win).
NFL Network’s ‘Around the League’: have the Saints winning across the board.
Amanda’s Take: The Saints are dangerous because they have the attitude of a wounded animal. But, there is still a reason they are 0-4. They are unable to close in the 4th quarter and despite the leadership of quarterback Drew Brees, the defense can’t keep up with his excellence.
Amanda’s Pick: Chargers 24-Saints 21.
