Hop ‘Til You Drop

Each of the past three offenses to have faced the Saints’ horrendous passing defense have produced at least four touchdowns through the air. Now the Saints will have to try and stop DeAndre Hopkins (maybe the best wide receiver on the planet)? Good luck. Here are my picks for the Sunday-Monday NFL week 12 slate:
