Dattitude Ep. 167: Derek Carr gets first road test for Saints

Can Derek Carr and the Saints go 2-0 with a win at Carolina on Monday Night Football? We’ll talk to Fletcher Mackel on Dattitude (Ep. 167) to find out.

Already we’re breaking the routine in Week 2 of the NFL season, as the Saints are playing on Monday Night Football to take on NFC South rival Carolina in Charlotte. What are the keys to the game, and what do some of our local sports people think is going to happen?

The game is on WDSU-TV tonight, so sports anchor Fletcher Mackel joins Jim Derry on Dattitude (Ep. 167) to preview the game and to offer a final prediction. Also, what are some of the best player prop bets on the game? Will Derek Carr go over 230 yards passing? What about Rashid Shaheed receiving and Jamaal Williams rushing?

Lastly, Jim picks his song of the day to go out on, and Saints fans – especially older ones – should enjoy listening. (And not just because the show is over when it plays.)
