The New England Patriots will try to avoid their second straight loss Sunday when the New Orleans Saints come to Foxboro.

Glenn Ordway, Fred Smerlas, and Steve DeOssie predicted who they thought would come out on top on New England Tailgate.

“They are going to be at home, cadence is going to be a big thing with Tom Brady to use,” Smerlas said. “Gronk is coming back. [Danny] Amendola is going to be back. And [Brady] will be in midseason form after a game and some practices. This going to be a shootout. Patriots win 37-30, take that to the bank.”

On the other hand, Ordway believes the Saints have too much offense for the Patriots to handle.

“What worries me in this one is that this secondary has really not faced a top-notch quarterback,” Ordway said. “They have done a very good job to this point, but they haven’t been tested with the type of weapons that New Orleans has.”
