[The Sports Guru] SAINTS vs. Lions

Monday Night Football is back to finish up Week 15 in the NFL!

It's the Saints vs. the Lions and I'm picking New Orleans to win it!
These two teams have struggled for much of the season, as both are eliminated from the playoffs. The Saints are 5-8 and the Lions are 4-9. It's strange to have a game between two losing teams on Monday Night Football but it'll be an enjoyable game either way.

I'm picking the Saints for one reason, primarily: the game is being played in the SuperDome. The Saints are tough as nails at home.

While this season hasn't gone to plan for Drew Brees and company, I still believe that they can beat the lowly Lions, who have showed almost no quality throughout the season.
True - the Lions have MegaTron, who will almost surely feast on the Saints' defense, which is the worst in the league.
But the Saints can put up points of their own, as Drew Brees is used to playing from behind and being forced to put up tons of points. I think he's capable of doing it, and I just don't trust Matt Stafford for even one minute. I've never liked him as a QB and I think he's constantly overrated. The Lions' defense is also terrible and I think Brees will find holes all around the field.
I don't like either of these teams, but my pick goes to the team with the home crowd behind them and the veteran All Star QB chucking the ball around the field. I think Brees and New Orleans get it done.
It'll be a shootout - not much defense in this one.

Saints 35, Lions 24.

Who are you picking for the game?
