New Orleans Saints postseason run begins today before 3:25 p.m. CST

Although the New Orleans Saints don’t begin their game against the New York Giants until 3:25 p.m CST, their postseason hopes begin at 12:00 p.m. CST.

That is because unfortunately the Saints shot at a fourth consecutive playoff appearance is not only in their hands, but in the hands of other teams as well.  A situation the team is not used to being in since in years past they have been almost been assured one by this time of the season.

Sitting at 5-7 the Saints are currently ranked as the #12 seed in the playoff race and are just looking to get the last position, the #6 seed, in order to hoist another Super Bowl trophy.

Ironically it’s the Giants that the Saints are looking to replicate considering that is how the the G-Men have won both of their last championships by coming in as the 9-7 underdogs.

The other teams in the way of the Saints in the seeding order are the Seattle Seahawks(#6), Washington Redskins(#7), Dallas Cowboys(#8), Tampa Bay Buccaneers(#9), Minnesota Vikings(#10), and St. Louis Rams(#11).

The  Seahawks are at 7-5, the Redskins, Cowboys, Buccaneers, and Vikings all have a 6-6 record with the Rams at a 5-6 record.  The Saints could not only get  heartbeat by defeating the Giants but for these teams to have a defeat as well.

All are scheduled to play today before the Saints except the Seahawks who will play at 3:25 p.m. as well.  Here are the full list of games with times included for all the scoreboard watching Who Dat’s.  All time’s are for Central Standard Time(CST)
