The New Orleans Saints head to Jacksonville for a Sunday afternoon matchup with the Jaguars. 

WWL’s Bobby Hebert think the Saints have a clear task ahead. 

“First things first, you gotta stop Leonard Fournette,”  Hebert said. “He had a game over 200 yards, and last week, even though they lost to Carolina, had over 100 yards. 

“You have to make Uncle Rico beat you.”

Hebert jokingly referred to Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew II as the character from the movie “Napoleon Dynamite” as the rookie out of Washington State has drawn comparisons due to his prominent mustache. 

Minshew has thrown for over 1,200 yards this season and nine touchdowns against one interception

Hebert also said it will be key for New Orleans quarterback Teddy Bridgewater to gets off to a fast start.

“It will be interesting to see with Teddy Bridgewater,” he said. “Can he build upon his performance, which was outstanding against Tampa Bay, because that’s what we need we are going to need that to set the tone against Jacksonville.”
