Meanwhile, New Orleans was close but no cigar last week as they fell 24-21 to the Philadelphia Eagles. No one had a standout game offensively for New Orleans, but they got scores from TE Jared Cook, RB Alvin Kamara, and WR Emmanuel Sanders. QB Taysom Hill ended up with a passer rating of 150.10.

This next matchup is expected to be close, with Kansas City going off at just a 2.5-point favorite. Now might not be the best time to take Kansas City against the spread since they've let down bettors for the past five consecutive games.
A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: Kansas City ranks first in the NFL when it comes to yards per game, with 429.2 on average. The Saints have displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they come into the game boasting the most rushing touchdowns in the league at 21.
