Keys to the Game: Bills vs. Saints

1 of 6

Pierre Thomas scores his first of two fourth quarter touchdowns in the Saints 27-7 win over the Bills 9.27.09

Our Boys are back in action Sunday! It’s been over four years since these two have met (rightfully so, because of the scheduling rotation). The Bills make their first trip to New Orleans since 2005.

Welcome back to another edition of Keys to the Game!

As always, we start with some weekly power rankings for the Black & Gold:

  • ESPN: #5 (Previous Week: #3) -2
  • #3 (Previous Week: #4) +1
  • CBS Sports:  #3 (Previous Week: #5) -2
  • Fox Sports: #5 (Previous Week: #2) -3

Though the Saints fell a little in the power rankings (make of that what you will), we all know this team is poised to rise. It seems forever ago since that last second loss against the Patriots, but we got over that quickly (and not to mention, Karma happened). The Saints have had a good bit of time to recover on the injury front, though there are a few that we are continuing to keep a close watch on. At any rate, enter the Bills, who are fresh off a road victory over divisional foe Miami.
