The New Orleans Saints are no strangers to injury this season. Alvin Kamara, Terron Armstead, and Ryan Ramczyk could all be unavailable for Sunday's game against the Philadelphia Eagles.
If that happens, the Saints likely won't shy away from the run game with mark Ingram and the potential return of Tony Jones Jr. Saints sixth-round draft pick Landon Young could see time behind Ramczyk, which gives the team the opportunity to see what he looks like at the position in case Ramczyk ever moves to left tackle in the near future.
The Saints have not had the most explosive passing offense in 2021. But could they finally get a wide receiver to over 100 yards for the first time this season? Tre'Quan Smith usually has a big breakout game or two each season, this Philadelphia Eagles defense is weak exactly where it benefits him in the passing game. Additionally, this would be a good matchup for the tight ends to have a get right game as well.
In order for the Saints to pull out a win in Philly and end their two-game losing streak, they'll need to contain Eagles quarterback Jalen Hurts, force the run game to go through the running backs, and continue to take away the big passing plays over the top of the defense. Meanwhile, the Saints offense will need to focus on taking what's given to them and finding a way to outrun the run-heavy home team.
