New Orleans Saints Face Two New Orleans Natives This Sunday
The New Orleans Saints will travel to New York to take on the New York Giants, and their two massive stars Eli Manning and Odell Beckham Jr.
It won't be the first time the Saints franchise has went up against the two graduates of Isidore Newman High School in New Orleans. Over Manning's career, he's locked up with his father's (Archie Manning) old team 7 times, while Odell has taken on the Saints twice.
In Manning's career against the Saints, he's thrown for 1,800 yards and 15 touchdown. The majority of those touchdowns came in an absolute epic game in 2015. In that same game, Beckham, Jr caught 3 touchdowns while recording 130 yards. Beckham Jr has only played twice against the Saints, has caught 16 total passes with those 3 touchdowns. He has just over 200 career reviving yards against the Saints.
There are many other New Orleans, and Louisiana, natives across the NFL, so it's not that this is a special occurrence. Its just not often that the two biggest stars on a single NFL team played for the same high school in a city that has a franchise they'll have to face.
