AFC West 2020 Week 12 predictions: Chiefs lose to Buccaneers
New Orleans Saints at Denver Broncos
The New Orleans Saints will once again roll with Taysom Hill under center, as Drew Brees is still out with multiple fractured ribs and a collapsed lung. Last weekend, Hill did a nice job in his first NFL start, beating division rival Atlanta handily, 24-9.
This Sunday, he and the Saints will head to Denver to take on a Broncos team that shocked the football landscape by defeating the Miami Dolphins in Week 11. Drew Lock is still trying to prove that he is the franchise quarterback of the Broncos moving forward, but he is going to have a hard time against this Saints defense.
For all the talk of the Saints offense, the defense has actually allowed 13-or-fewer points in each of their last three games, and are currently riding a seven-game winning streak. That streak will continue in Denver, and while I believe this game will be tight down to the fourth quarter, Hill and the Saints pull away late.
Prediction: Saints 28, Broncos 20
