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.
