The New Orleans Saints will make the NFL Playoffs

The New Orleans Saints will have to visit the Atlanta Falcons, New York Giants, and Dallas Cowboys. They face the Carolina Panthers and Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Superdome.

The Saints defense clearly isn’t elite, but they have proven they can make the necessary stops when it counts.

The 49ers proved that New Orleans cannot win games if quarterback Drew Brees is the sole engine propelling them down the field. If the Saints want decisive wins they need to be more balanced.

If the Saints start to trust in Chris Ivory and finally start to treat him like the emerging solid running back that he is, this team will do great things.

A good schedule helps their chances of getting into the playoffs, but so does winning football games.

The Saints need to handle their business in the Georgia Dome against the Atlanta Falcons in order to begin locking up their spot in the playoffs.

      I know that’s right they can’t afford another loss, yes they do need to handle their business in the Georgia Dome because Atlanta Falcons want to prove a point to the Saints.

    Of course, they’d have to win on Thursday, which would seem unlikely. Then again, will Coach Smith play injured key players just to win against the Saints? Are the Saints worth the cost of putting players at even more risk when they are already injured? I don’t think that winning against the Saints is worth that much this regular season. Coach Smith might want to test backups, not just to give injured players some rest but also to give backups some playing time. Atlanta is in the driver’s seat, no matter how the Falcons fare against the Saints. Besides, the Falcons might even take satisfaction in having Saints fans feel like they’ve won the Super Bowl, if their team manages to pull off another win against the otherwise unbeaten Falcons. The Falcons need to focus on bigger challenges this year than beating the Saints, like beating their Super Bowl opponent.

    If they keep kicking opponent players in the head it will probably help…
