Saints Win Super Bowl !! According To The Predictions From ESPN

Posted by | September 2, 2019 .

A recent report from ESPN.com predicts the New Orleans Saints will win Super Bowl LIV despite a slow start to the 2019 season.

The prediction is based on a simulation from ESPN’s Power Football Index. The cable sports network predicts the Saints will start out the year 4-4 but will finish 11-5 with a first-round bye in the playoffs.

This Is According to ESPN Predictions Only:

WEEK 2

Sweet, sweet revenge for New Orleans: #BringTheMafia In a rematch of the NFC Championship Game, the Saints avenge their loss and make sure that a stray pass interference call (or lack thereof) can’t get in the way, as they smack down the Rams 27-3.

WEEK 5

New Orleans rebounds: Ever since their last-minute loss to Houston in Week 1, Drew Brees has had the Saints clicking at 4-1. Three of the team’s four wins have been by more than a touchdown, too.

Saints clinch NFC South: Atlanta gave them a run for their money, but ultimately Brees and Sean Payton were able to keep their foot on the gas down the stretch and build up a two-game advantage over Atlanta at 10-5. The Falcons remain alive for the postseason at 8-7.

NFC playoff seeds: 1. Green Bay Packers, 2. New Orleans Saints, 3. San Francisco 49ers, 4. Philadelphia Eagles, 5. Los Angeles Rams, 6. Atlanta Falcons

Divisional Weekend:

(2) Saints 27, (3) 49ers 17: And here’s where Jimmy G’s road comes to an end. Brees’ devastatingly accurate passing attack was too much for this defense. Still, it was a very successful season for San Francisco.



Conference championships:

Saints 17, Rams 10: Finally, justice. Sure, it was nice for the Saints to beat the Rams in the regular season, but they held the grudge from last year for 12 full months. And they got the opportunity to really pay back L.A. Defense stole the show, too, stifling McVay and Jared Goff.

Super Bowl LIV: Saints 40, Chargers 33

In a meeting of the No. 1 (Saints) and No. 2 (Chargers) offenses in the NFL, Brees is back on top. A decade after he and Payton beat Peyton Manning and the Colts in Super Bowl XLIV, the duo get it done again. It’s heartbreak for Rivers, having come so close to finally winning that elusive championship, but he comes up a touchdown short. He says you’ll have to simulate the offseason to find out whether he’s coming back for a 17th season at 38 years old, but FPI leaves us at the Saints’ victory parade down Bourbon Street.
