Scenario #2 seems a bit more likely to me. In this, the Saints would still have to secure a victory and need either the Detroit Lions or Chicago Bears to lose on Sunday. If this were to happen, the Saints would secure a Wild Card spot in the playoffs. Trust me, I’m rooting for Scenario #1. A Wild Card spot is nice, but we saw what happened last year.
The Lions will host the Minnesota Vikings in a game that is extremely important for Detroit and their playoff dreams. The Lions have been in self-destruct mode lately, none more evident than the recent game against the Saints. The Vikings sit at 2-10 and are out of the playoffs but are the spoiler here too.
The Bears are playing the Denver Broncos at Denver this Sunday with both teams at 7-5. Also, both teams are in need of a win to move towards the playoffs. The Bears look shakey at this point while the Broncos have seen salvation under quarterback Tim Tebow. Out of the two in this scenario, I think Denver will pull this one out.
