Week 12: at New Orleans Saints

Mark and Joe say: Neutral matchup. Baltimore comes into this game off their bye week, so everyone should be healed of their dings and nicks - look for Joe Flacco and company to be going strong down in N'Arlins this weekend. When last we saw Flacco, he was throwing 16/27 for 169 passing yards, one TD and zero interceptions on the way to a 21-7 win over Tennessee. He leaned on Torrey Smith the most in that game (eight targets for 5/75/1 receiving), while Steve Smith Sr. squandered most of his seven chances (3/17/0 receiving). In fact, nobody other than Torrey Smith got over 40 yards receiving on a day that the running backs ground out 34/151/2 in the other phase of the game. The Saints' rep as being very tough at home has taken two significant hits over the past two weeks, as they dropped a 24-27 decision to the visiting 49ers two games ago (14/32 for 186 net yards passing, one TD and zero interceptions, with four sacks taken for -24 yards), followed by a 10-27 drubbing at the hands of Cincinnati (16/22 for 219 net yards passing, three TDs and zero interceptions thrown, with one sack taken for -1 yards). This is the same Cincinnati squad that two weeks ago had zero TDs and three interceptions thrown (and only 79 net yards passing out of 39 attempts). Suffice to say that the New Orleans' pass D has fallen off pace lately, especially in the passing-TDs-allowed department. Flacco and company have a neutral matchup here even though they are on the road to a deafening Mercedes-Benz Superdome for Monday Night Football. The Saints' glaring weakness at defending the run may conspire to keep the football handed off rather than thrown on Monday, though.
