8. New Orleans Saints

This could prove to be a very tough matchup for New York if they don't execute. The Saints went from a quarterback duo of Andy Dalton and Jameis Winston to Carr. Carr has had some support offensively during his tenure in Oakland/Las Vegas, but you could make the argument, all things considered, this is the best team he's been on.

Alvin Kamara will look to have a bounce-back year, Chris Olave is only going to get better after an impressive rookie campaign and maybe Michael Thomas will stay healthy for more than five seconds. This is an offense that could really give the Giants problems if they don't come ready to play.

Defensively, the Saints are just as sneaky. Cameron Jordan has been a solid defensive lineman since he came into the league. If he is able to have his way with the Giants front, it could be a long day for Jones. In the secondary, Jones will have to deal with Marshon Lattimore and Tyrann Mathieu.

Both of these guys will make you pay if you make a poor decision or read. Jones' improvement in turnovers from last year could be put to the test with these two ballhawks in the New Orleans secondary.
