Jeff Duncan from New Orleans Times-Picayune joins PFT Live to urge Saints fans to temper their anger at the team’s 2-4 start because of their narrow margin of defeat and deciphers if Drew Brees and the offense can carry the defense that has looked shaky at times the rest of the way.

PFT Live: Saints talk with Jeff Duncan, PFT Planet calls and tweets

The Saints will host the Packers on Sunday Night Football in a game that the 2-4 Saints could really use if they are going to return to the playoffs this season.

Jeff Duncan of the New Orleans Times-Picayune will join Mike Florio on Friday’s edition of PFT Live to preview the contest. They’ll discuss what the Saints defense needs to do to have a chance at knocking quarterback Aaron Rodgers out of the relaxed groove he’s been in this month and whether the team’s offense remains potent enough to overcome a shaky defense if they can’t get it together on that side of the ball.

There are plenty of other games to talk about and we’re curious to hear what’s on the minds of PFT Planet heading into the weekend. You can send in questions for Florio on Twitter — @ProFootballTalk — or give a call to 888-237-5269 during the show to share what you’re thinking about this Friday.

It all gets started at noon ET and you can watch it all live by clicking right here.

PFT Live: Denard Robinson, Week Eight picks

The Jaguars got their first 100-yard rushing game of the year last Sunday against the Browns, but it didn’t come from offseason free agent acquisition Toby Gerhart.

It was former Michigan quarterback and 2013 fifth-round pick Denard Robinson that did the honors and helped the Jags to their first victory of the season. Robinson will join Mike Florio on Thursday’s edition of PFT Live to talk about getting that victory, his transition to running back and what he thinks the rest of the 2014 season holds for a young Jaguars team.

The Jaguars face the Dolphins in a battle for Florida bragging rights this Sunday and that will be one of the 15 games that Florio and MDS are predicting winners for this week. They’ll share their choice for that game and the reasoning behind that choice during our weekly picks segment.
