Detroit Lions at New Orleans Saints Game Thread

Tonight's second game of the NFL Playoffs might feel unusual for Jets fans. It features two teams that consistent complete forward passes, a concept that likely feels alien to Gang Green fans. The Saints and Lions could very well light up the scoreboard in the Superdome tonight with their high flying passing attacks.

I think the smart money for this one is on the Saints. They are extremely difficult to beat on their home field. Their advantage is only magnified in a game like this. It is also unclear how the Lions, a team with a number of young players holding down key spots will respond to such an intense environment in the biggest game many of these guys have ever played. Beyond this, Drew Brees is just playing unbelievable football. He is going to be very difficult to beat.

Enjoy the nightcap, and leave your thoughts on this NFC clash below.
