New Orleans figures to get tested on Monday by a New England offense that set the standard in excellence.  With quarterback Tom Brady and receivers Randy Moss and Wes Welker, the Patriots set the NFL betting record for most points scored in a season two years ago.  It will be up to the Saints defense to contain Brady and his receivers. The Saints rank #1 in the league in takeaways and interceptions so they have a chance to slow down Brady.  Safety Darren Sharper leads the league in interception return yards.

On the other side of the ball it seems unlikely that New England can stop Brees and the New Orleans offense. The Saints have a number of weapons on offense and actually have a higher ranking rushing the ball than throwing it.  The Saints are 5th in the league in rushing and 6th in passing.   The Patriots are only 14th in the NFL against the run but they are 6th against the pass.

New England has won 8 of the 11 all-time meetings against New Orleans with the last victory coming by a score of 24-17 in 2005. Here are more NFL betting stats for Monday's game. The Patriots are 3-1-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Patriots are 5-2-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a road underdog.

The Saints are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 12. The Saints are 12-4-1 ATS in their last 17 games overall. The Saints are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a home favorite.

The Over is 11-5 in the Patriots last 16 games as a road underdog. The Over is 4-0 in the Saints last 4 Monday games. The Over is 12-3-1 in the Saints last 16 games as a home favorite. The Over is 21-9-1 in the Saints last 31 games overall.
