New Orleans Saints 2022 season recap

The 2022 season in the NFC South was indeed quite competitive, with the Saints finishing in a 3-way tie for second place at 7-10, just one game behind the Buccaneers who won the division with an 8-9 record. The division title ultimately came down to a crucial Week 13 Monday Night Football showdown between the Saints and Bucs, which the Saints narrowly lost 17-16 after leading 16-3 with less than 4 minutes remaining. Despite a strong finish with Andy Dalton at quarterback, the Saints couldn’t overtake Tampa Bay for the division crown.

New Orleans Saints 2023 NFL season predictions

Derek Carr’s arrival in New Orleans has certainly raised expectations for the Saints’ offense in 2023. The team struggled on the offensive side of the ball in 2022, averaging just 19.4 points per game. Carr’s addition is expected to provide stability at the quarterback position and potentially improve the offensive production. 

You mentioned having predictions for the Saints in 2023, but it seems you haven’t shared those predictions yet. Please go ahead and provide your predictions, and I’ll be happy to discuss them with you.

Best bet: New Orleans Saints to miss the playoffs (+160)

It’s clear that you have reservations about the Saints’ ability to make a significant turnaround in 2023, despite Derek Carr’s arrival. You mentioned concerns about the team’s defense and the overall quality of the roster. Your preference for the “missing the playoffs” bet at +160 suggests you believe the Saints might fall short of postseason expectations even with Carr under center.

It’s worth noting that the NFL can be quite unpredictable, and while the Saints may face challenges, they also have the potential to surprise. Carr has shown himself to be a competent quarterback in the past, and a change of scenery can sometimes rejuvenate a player’s career. The NFC South has been competitive, and the division title could be up for grabs.

In any case, it will be interesting to see how the Saints perform in the upcoming season, and whether Carr can provide the stability and leadership needed to guide the team back to the playoffs.

New Orleans Saints season record predictions

You’re taking a cautious approach with your win total predictions for the Saints, projecting an 8-9 record and even considering a 7-10 outcome. Given your skepticism about the team’s ability to make the playoffs, it’s reasonable to expect a sub-.500 season in a competitive NFC.

As you mentioned earlier, the NFC South can be unpredictable, and while the division title may be within reach, it’s far from guaranteed. Your predictions reflect the uncertainty surrounding the Saints in 2023 and provide an interesting perspective on their potential outcomes for the season. It will certainly be intriguing to see how the team performs under Derek Carr’s leadership and whether they can overcome the challenges ahead.
