There’s nothing better than Thanksgiving dessert, and the NFL’s Thanksgiving Day game recap goes sweet. The Bills and the Saints will face off against each other in a pivotal battle between teams battling to stay consistent across their divisions and in frenetic Wild Card races in AFC and NFC.
The Bills are currently caught up in a close battle with the Patriots for the top spot in the AFC East. Buffalo used to be considered the strongest team in the AFC, but have lost 3 of the last 5 games and are slightly behind the Patriots in the qualifying race. Josh Allen and the Bills’ offensive team will need to show up and play well against a troubled Saints defense.
The Saints have now lost three games in a row, and the team’s attack is in great difficulty. Trevor Siemian threw two intercepts, including a six pick, against the Eagles in Week 11. New Orleans’ forwards struggled to move the ball without Alvin Kamara and two of their top attacking players. team, but if they go back to the Bills, they’ll be in better shape to compete.
New Orleans isn’t far behind the Buccaneers in the NFC South race, but they are rallying with both the Panthers and Falcons, who are at a striking distance from the Saints in the Wild Card race.
