The Saints and Giants are both tough teams to gauge in the NFC. New Orleans should be much improved with Derek Carr at quarterback and it has had a top-10 defense in each of the last three years. That’s unlikely to change in 2023.
The Giants made the playoffs last season and Daniel Jones seems to have blossomed into at least a top-16 quarterback in the NFL. The Rams will be on the road playing at 10 a.m. PT in that game, which makes it even more difficult.
Then to cap off the season, they’ll visit the 49ers in Week 18, which could decide the Rams’ playoff fate. San Francisco has the Rams’ number, winning eight of the last nine meetings, and by this point in the season, the 49ers should have their quarterback situation sorted out.
