Two 3-0 teams meet on Monday Night Football in Week 4, as the Saints host the Dolphins. New Orleans has been red hot since the return of head coach Sean Payton and has already triumphed over the likes of the Falcons, Buccaneers and Cardinals. Saints quarterback Drew Brees will face a Dolphins team that once turned him down on the free-agent market and Miami comes into New Orleans as a force in the AFC. However, despite their equivalent records, the home team is favored in the Monday night contest by seven points, according to Odds Shark.
The Saints will likely test the Dolphins' secondary all night with their impressive aerial attack. Brees has an array of weapons on tap with tight end Jimmy Graham, running back Darren Sproles and wide receiver Marques Colston on the docket. The New Orleans defense has also been turned around, so if the Saints can put up a lot of points, Miami may struggle to keep up.
For the Dolphins, quarterback Ryan Tannehill will need to get the ball to his three wide receivers. Brian Hartline, Mike Wallace and Brandon Gibson have all played well and now is the time for them to make a statement in a game that is likely to be a shootout. The Dolphins will also have running backs Lamar Miller and Daniel Thomas at their disposal.
The Saints will host the Dolphins on Monday night at 8:30 p.m. ET on ESPN.
