NFL.com predicts New Orleans Saints will break even with their season

NFL.com features their usual playoff and season predictions on it’s website and they are giving their thoughts on the outlook for the  New Orleans Saints future for this year.

They are predicting that the Saints will end the season with an 8-8 record which follows along with a poll here on the site where it shows that over 50% of voters think that the team will finish the same.

The forecast also gives the Saints for games(Eagles, Buccaneers(2), and Panthers) as a victory with the rest being close.  The team is also given 21% chance to make it to the postseason.

While this may discourage Saints fans, it’s a far better look than they are giving the Buccaneers(6-10) and the Panthers(5-11).  They also give the Buccaneers a 1% chance for the postseason and Panthers a less than 1% chance.

    I hope not, they need 12-4 I have the faith in New Orleans Saints and I’m in Dallas, Tx. What games I do see there’s nothing wrong with New Orleans Saints but just need to play ball, the other thing is whoever not for the Saints need to SHUT THE HELL UP and find them a team to ride the Saints Bus is loaded this the only thing wrong with them not focusing. But they the team to watch

      There is something wrong The saints Defense is absolutely horrible. Offense is fine, in fact the Saints could easily be 4-1 right now if not for a few killshots we gave ourselves.

        I knew they wasn’t going to do well from the start because of all the mess, plus when the NFL suspended Sean Payton I knew it was going to be hard on the Saints. They are a family Sean Payton plays a big role in these players life in football, there’s not to much wrong with the Saints defense just need to play to win. The defense always been bad but still had a good year so they can’t point fingers and we as fans can’t either. They played like the Saints against the chargers if they continue to play like that they can go somewhere.
