The New Orleans Saints suffered another heart breaker that came down to a touchdown attempt with a two-point conversion in order to tie the game and go into overtime.  Of course the results were the same as last week and now the Saints are 0-2 on the season and 0-1 in the NFC South.

This leaves the team in an unusual position of trailing their division for the first time in years.  The Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers are tied for with a 1-1 record on the season and the division.

The Atlanta Falcons have played no division games yet but are technically undefeated with a 1-0 season record.  They will face the Denver Broncos Monday night and attempt to go 2-0 on the season.

The Saints haven’t started 0-2 since their 2007 season and missed the playoffs completely after having a magical season in 2006.  Their schedule doesn’t get any easier either as they will face some tough opponents especially on the road.
