Packers secondary could be down two starters vs. Brees, Saints

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It certainly helps to be at full strength going into a game at the Superdome against Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints' second-ranked passing offense. However, the Green Bay Packers might find themselves down two starters in the secondary. Safety Morgan Burnett (calf) is questionable and cornerback Sam Shields (knee) is doubtful.

Saints Nation Bold Predictions – Packers – Week 8

I loved you guys joining in and adding to the bold predictions! The Lewis pick 6 came close.. Pick was true, the 6 was not. Andrew Doyle’s week 5 prediction of the Saints winning the rest of the season was true for nearly 2 games. Not the rest of the season.

The New Orleans Saints were on easy street at cornerback, for once, during the 2013 season. They weren't going to find much better than Keenan Lewis and Jabari Greer.
