Things might have changed for Drew Brees and friends had New Orleans finished in the red zone in Minnesota.

Sure, they were playing the Jets, but Tyrod Taylor and LeSean McCoy kept it simple, and let the Bills’ defense had an easy first day at the office for new coach Sean McDermott. Now comes the hard part of playing competitive NFL teams.

It was a rough start for Joey Bosa and the defense, and not so great for Philip Rivers in the offense until it was too late. New coach Anthony Lynn wil try to get his first win in their new (temporary) home.

What hasn’t changed is the fact they’re still not good defensively.

Carson Palmer is back in an interception funk. David Johnson won’t be in the backfield for a while. There’s just too much on a talented defense still giving up too many big plays.

There are several good pieces around Philip Rivers and Melvin Gordon, and the defense has a couple lead studs in Joey Bosa and Melvin Ingram. But as a rookie, Anthony Lynn and his staff are bound to take several relocation lumps.

Joe Flacco should return from his back injury soon, but he’s returning to a lot of change, from his line to his receiving corps. Offensive inconsistency will plague them all season.

Garrett was the no-brainer No. 1 overall pick in April, and he showed why in August, causing many jaws to drop with some nasty moves in both training camp and preseason games. He should wreak havoc consistently and put up the necessary sack total to take home the award.

Jets safety Jamal Adams was an early favorite, but the mess around him Cheap Jerseys Wholesale Site hurts. Garrett is likely to be pushed most by the 49ers’ Reuben Foster, who’s bound to rack up a ton of Cheap Jerseys Zoom clean-up tackles. The sleeper to watch, of course, is J.J.’s brother, Steelers edge rusher T.J. Watt.
