Packers at New Orleans for Monday night showdown

Posted:

GREEN BAY, Wis. (AP) -- Both the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints are 5-and-5. But, while Green Bay is in a tie for first place in the NFC North, New Orleans is in last place in the NFC South.

  After playing three road games, one "home" game in London, and having a bye week, the Saints are ready to return to the Superdome and a big, enthusiastic crowd.

  The Saints got their first road win of the season last week, and would like another first Monday night: back-to-back victories.

  In New Orleans, the Packers will face the top offense and passing game in the NFL, and one of the worst running games.

  The ground game was once the Saints' bread-and-butter with the combination of Reggie Bush and Deuce McAllister providing strength and flash. But, it now ranks 28th in the league.
