Saints at Rams: 6 key matchups to watch in Week 2
By: Cameron DaSilva
The New Orleans Saints will march into the Coliseum on Sunday for a huge battle with the Los Angeles Rams. There’s no shortage of storylines surrounding this game, whether it’s the fallout of the missed pass interference penalty in the NFC championship or Marcus Peters once again facing Sean Payton’s team.
To preview the Week 2 contest, here are six key matchups to watch.
Marcus Peters vs. Michael Thomas
Thomas’ two games against the Rams last season came with very different results. In Week 9, he had 12 catches for a career-high 211 yards and two touchdowns. In the NFC championship game, he was held to four catches and 36 yards on only seven targets.
So what was the difference? It was partly thanks to Aqib Talib.
