New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Rams

Sunday: 4:25 p.m. ET, CBS | Point spread: LAR by 2.5 | PickCenterInsider

Two of the three insiders are taking the Saints on the road despite questions about New Orleans' health in the secondary.

"[Drew] Brees will be able to win the battle with [Rams defensive coordinator] Wade Phillips," one of the insiders said. "With Brees, he does a good job when pressured unless you hit him, and I don't know if they will be able to get to him. Wade wants to bring the heat, and those veteran QBs who have seen it can decipher it."
