After today’s loss to the Carolina Panthers, the Saints have joined a not-so-elite club of NFL teams that are now at the 0-2 mark and you might be surprised at the company.
Currently the Saints join the Oakland Raiders, Kansas City Chiefs, Cleveland Browns, Jacksonville Jaguars, and Tennessee Titans as those losing two in a row. Of course given the Saints previous records over the past three years, you would think they would be in the 2-0 or at least 1-1 category.
Next Sunday the Saints will try to avoid going 0-3 in a match-up with one of the above teams, the Kansas City Chiefs. The game will be in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, but the game against the Washington Redskins proved that that alone won’t help.
The Chiefs took a thrashing at the hands of the Buffalo Bills today and could be ripe for the Saints to continue off of it next Sunday. However, the Chiefs will have the same mindset and no doubt will try to use the game plan that the Panthers and Redskins have to help themselves to a win.
