The magazine's senior football writer also predicts a break-out year for Saints fourth-year running back Mark Ingram.
Hopefully Don Banks, one of Sports Illustrated's senior football writers, isn't jinxing us when he picks Drew Brees and the Saints to prevail over Peyton Manning and the Denver Broncos in Super Bowl XLIX (49).
"The Saints are loaded offensively and I think the addition of Jairus Byrd at safety takes their secondary to a new level," Banks says in the short video. "As improved as Denver's defense is, it still won't be able to stop an offense that can come at you from so many different directions."
Banks also predicts a break-out year for Saints fourth-year running back Mark Ingram.
