Wow, we’re trucking along this season! I mean think about it, the only days we really have to go without any type of football is Tuesday & Wednesday now. Welcome back to another edition of Keys to the Game!

Let’s start with some weekly power rankings for the Black & Gold:

  • ESPN: #8 (Previous Week: #8) EVEN
  • #8 (Previous Week: #7) -1
  • CBS Sports:  #5 (Previous Week: #6) +1
  • Fox Sports: #11 (Previous Week: #12) +1

After opening the season against two NFC South opponents, the Saints now face two NFC Non-Divisional opponents, and two AFC Conference opponents over the next four weeks, right before their bye week.

This Sunday, the Cardinals come to town, and there’s a good bit of familiar faces that so to speak, ‘return home’. The last time the Saints played the Cardinals was 10/10/10, in the Desert, where the Saints lost 30-20.
