Week 6 NFL preview: Saints vs. Patriots

Drew Brees can help Jimmy Graham break an NFL receiving record, while Tom Brady finally gets Rob Gronkowski back. Two of the NFL's must-watch offenses meet in Week 6's best NFL matchup. Matt Ufford previews the game and makes his pick.

Sean Payton has the Saints back on track at 5-0, while Tom Brady has overcome a complete lack of receivers to guide the Patriots to a 4-1 record. That receiving corps gets a big boost with the much-anticipated return of Rob Gronkowski, but whether he will be able to make an instant impact against a much-improved Saints defense is yet to be seen. Vegas has the Pats as the favorites, but Matt Ufford and the gang think New Orleans pulls through to 6-0.
