Tonight, we get a matchup of two NFC South teams on Monday Night Football. This game projects to have little or no defense played, and the over/under for this game is a very high 53.5 points.

In fact, both defensive units involved in this game are in the bottom 10 of the NFL in yards per play allowed. Add in the fast turf at the Superdome and a pair of offenses who are in the top 4 NFL teams in yards per play and you can imagine this game being a high-scoring track meet.

Here are the details about tonight’s game, and be sure to join us this evening as we follow along with the results of the game.
