The New Orleans Saints will be looking to extend their two-game win streak on Sunday, when they travel to Oakland, California to take on the Oakland Raiders.

New Orleans defeated the previously unbeaten Atlanta Falcons, 31-27, last week, for their fouth win in their last five games, moving them to 4-5 on the year, while Oakland got hammered by the Baltimore Ravens, 55-20, to fall to 3-6.

The Saints are led by quarterback Drew Brees, who 230-of-374 passes, for 2,847 yards, and 25 touchdowns this year, while the Raiders are paced by quarterback Carson Palmer, who has completed 230-of-375 passes, for 2,723 yards, and 15 touchdowns.

Getting back to Brees, the Saints’ signal-caller has thrown at least one TD pass in a league-record 52 straight games.

The New Orleans offense ranks fourth in the league, averaging 392.3 yards-per-game, with Oakland checking in at number 12, at 365.6 yards a contest.

Defensively, the Saints rank last in the league, allowing 469.3 yards-per-game, while the Raiders rank 23rd, giving up 374.9 yards a match-up.
