Well, this is what we were looking for today! If you can believe it, it was the first time the Saints scored 30+ this season. Apparently, I guess I was generous in my Keys to the Game prediction giving the Cardinals 17 points. Still, I guess I was at least right about the 31 for the Saints.

Everyone is riding this high, and enjoying this sweet victory.
