The win still counts as Mac Jones’ first in the NFL, but the star of the 1-1 Patriots' first win of the season was, without a doubt, their defense. The Pats’ D picked off rookie quarterback Zach Wilson four times in their 25-6 week two win. Two of those picks were courtesy of cornerback J.C. Jackson. During their defensive dominance, New England also sacked Wilson four times, with second-year linebacker Josh Uche recording his second and third sacks of the season. 

As for their quarterback, Jones shook off three sacks to complete 22-of-his-30 passes for 186 yards. He was able to rely on his running game to maintain offensive rhythm. Damien Harris, James White and Kendrick Bourne combined for 101 yards on the ground with two touchdowns. 

The inactives are as follows: 

Saints: QB Ian Book, DT Albert Huggins, WR Lil'Jordan Humphrey, C Erik McCoy, CB Desmond Trufant

Patriots: TE Devin Asiasi, OT Trent Brown, DE Ronnie Perkins, RB Rhamondre Stevenson, LB Josh Uche, CB Shaun Wade

With a defense as aggressive and ball-hawking as the Patriots, the Saints (1-1) will be pressed to protect and get open for Jameis Winston. The 27-year-old started the season off on an extreme high throwing five touchdowns in New Orleans’ 38-3 week one stomping of the Packers. Last week, he was a totally different guy. Winston threw no touchdowns with two interceptions against the Panthers and took four sacks. His passer rating dropped 104 points between the two weeks. 

The Patriots are 3-point favorites against the Saints. The over/under is 42.
