The New Orleans Saints will face the Los Angeles Rams in Week 11.

Both teams are not living up to expectations this season.

At 3-7, the Saints are on the brink of playoff elimination.

At 3-6, the Rams sit in last place in their division. Their “Super Bowl hangover” has hit quite hard this season.

The Rams’ offense has been inconsistent all season, and their job just got even harder after this past weekend. Star wideout Cooper Kupp suffered a serious ankle injury.

He will not be available for the Rams versus the Saints.

The loss is massive for the Rams.

They have dealt with injuries along their offensive line all season. The Saints know plenty about that.

Now, disaster struck for the Rams’ best player.

For the Saints, it certainly makes the matchup easier on defense. It sounds like New Orleans will be without cornerback Marshon Lattimore once again this week, though.

The Saints have been without Lattimore for over a month now.

Their depth has been tested, and some players have performed better than expected. Others have definitely not lived up to expectations.

This week, expect Alontae Taylor to fill the role as the top cornerback on the depth chart once again.

The Saints will need to perform against WRs Allen Robinson and Van Jefferson if they want to beat the Rams on Sunday.
