New Orleans Saints (2-3) vs. Detroit Lions (3-2)

Noon, Sunday, Oct. 19, at Ford Field

SCOUTING REPORT

The Saints will spend their off week self scouting, looking for ways to improve the many mistakes that have plagued their performance during the early part of the season. But they’ll also have 14 days to figure out a way to stop the Lions’ Calvin Johnson, who might the most dominant wide receiver in the NFL. Quarterback Matthew Stafford is prone to mistakes, as he’s thrown four interceptions and has been sacked 17 times. There are weaknesses New Orleans can exploit.
