The Jacksonville Jaguars play host to the New Orleans Saints on Sunday afternoon.
Since they like a list of 4-1 entering Week 6 new Orleans are off to a quick start. Theystarting signal-caller andre doing it without their leader. Drew Brees is tethered to a thumb injury, that has forced him to miss the vast majority of the year so far. Brees was removed from activity in Week 2. His full game came in Week 1, also a 30-28 win over the Texans.
The Saints were smart to include Teddy Bridgewater for the roster in 2018 after going through a ton of rehabilitation following his tenure with the Vikings. Until he suffered a knee injury in practice before this 2016 year old bridgewater was growing into a pretty good quarterback. To taking snaps as a 16, its been a very long road back for Bridgewater. The Saints were smart to not exchange Bridgewater. A few offers might have amused after Bridgewater showed he was healthy enough to play with NFL football .
As far as Brees is concerned, he is expecting to get back on the field ahead of the Week 9 bye. That would be against the Arizona Cardinals. Whether he progresses that or the team wants to provide him the bye remains to be seen right now. If Bridgewater is doing well and the ball is moving under him, there is no reason to hurry back Brees. They are in a great spot at 4-1 and will move to 5-1 on Sunday with a win against the Jaguars.
The Jaguars input with a list of 2-3. Theyve been depending on Gardner Minshew with Nick Foles out. Minshew has looked like value to get a sixth-round selection. Minshew is a product of the Mike Leach air-raid platform in Washington State. A good deal of these quarterbacks never workout at the professional level, however, Minshew has seemed great with a 2-2 start for a beginner. It will be difficult when Foles gets fit enough to go back to seat him In case Minshew continues to perform well. This will be a matchup of two backup QBs who have left the most from the opportunity. Head below to our complimentary Saints vs. Jaguars pick in Week 6 of the NFL.

Bridgewater is currently going to ensure it is tempting for teams searching for a quarterback in the offseason to take a look at him. He is an unrestricted free agent following this season, so hes ready to listen different teams. Considering how he is playing with the Saints much, Bridgewater could end up demanding money everywhere, leaving the Saints in a hopeless place to re-sign him. Perhaps when Brees suffers a significant accident that places his 2020 period but thats probably about all.
Hes passed 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions, while connecting in an impressive 70.2% of the passes. Bridgewater does not have. His ability to find yards along with his legs was his most dangerous weapon, when he had been a Viking.
Bridgewater has dropped some of the luster as a quarterback, but hes made up with a better arm at the pocket, at least from what weve seen out of him. His most remarkable showing came last week from the Buccaneers, as the scoreboard lit up with yards and 4 touchdowns.
Bridgewater wont have to feast off the Bucs defense this week. Tampa are dead against the pass, allowing a mean of 323.6 passing yards per game. They are the sole defense in the league which have allowed over 300 yards per game. The Jaguars are coming from a poor showing defensively but certainly will be likely to reveal than the Bucs. Jacksonville have enabled an average of 245.4 passing yards per game. Jalen Ramsey may or not play on Sunday.
The Saints are near this Jags with yards. New Orleans will need to slow Minshew who has been around for a mission. Minshew has thrown for 9 touchdowns and 1 interception with 66.7% completions. He has been locked at home, since Minshew has completed 76.4percent of his moves in Jacksonville. He was introduced to the injury report Thursday, however it is a really minor groin injury. I think you can find it on Sunday afternoon, if you are interested in finding the trap of this week.
Regardless of the Saints becoming inserted as a slight underdog in this competition, the general public will hammer the group that are really on a three-game win streak. Their only loss this season has arrived against the Rams. And wins from Cowboys, the Seahawks, and Texans are bound to get the interest of bettors.
The Jags are on an reduction versus the Panthers heels. Their win was on the street against the Broncos. That leaves you to wonder why theyre the favorites here, especially when the public will pound the Saints before kickoff. Bridgewater regresses and Minshew places another impressive performance in this together. The novels are currently trying to lure Saints cash in such a one. Im not falling for this and moving with the Jags to find a win at home over the Saints.
