Wide receiver Michael Thomas and running back Alvin Kamara continue on record-setting paces, and it is all because of the play of 39-year old quarterback Drew Brees.
Brees and the high-powered New Orleans Saints (2-1) offense head into the Meadowlands to take on standout rookie running back Saquon Barkley and the New York Giants (1-2) on Sunday afternoon.

Thomas is on pace for an unheard of 192 receptions, Kamara is on pace for the most receptions from a running back in a single season – and could challenge total yards, too – but it was Brees who was the story of the Saints’ 43-37 overtime road victory against the Atlanta Falcons last week. 396 yards, three passing touchdowns and two rushing touchdowns is damn impressive, so what will the NFL’s now all-time leader in pass completions do for an encore?
That will be decided by the Giants defense, who will be without defensive end Olivier Vernon (ankle) and starting cornerback Eli Apple (groin). In other words, it is going to be another long day for Big Blue. Despite an overtime road game last week, New Orleans should have no problem putting up points again against a banged-up (black and blue) Giants defense.
After two anemic offensive performances to start the season, the Giants woke up for 27 points in a Week 3 road win against the Houston Texans. The 27 points was a positive for the Giants, who still remain without a 30-point effort since Tom Coughlin’s last game as head coach.
Eli Manning looked like the Eli Manning of old, though – a weakened, bad Texans secondary will do that. Manning will need to be able to put up points with Odell Beckham Jr, Sterling Shepard and Saquon Barkley in a hurry if they are to defeat the Saints in the Meadowlands on Sunday.
Beckham Jr. has two games with 10-or-more receptions this season, but has yet to find the endzone. After winning AP Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2017, Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore has taken a significant step back in 2018. Through Week 3, Pro Football Focus has Lattimore (62.3) graded as the 62nd best cornerback in the NFL, a steep decline from his elite form as a rookie.
Noticeably absent from the above list is 2017 first-round draft pick, tight end Evan Engram. Engram, who is one of Manning’s safety valves, is “week to week” with an MCL sprain, more likely out 2-4 weeks.
