1. Saints pull off the upset 

This is a very winnable game for the New Orleans Saints.  Thanks to an energizing Saints victory against Atlanta last week and a bad loss for Indy against the New England Patriots, highlighted by some unorthodox failed fake punt attempt (whatever you call that ugly thing), the momentum arrow is pointing in New Orleans’ direction.

While both teams are desperately seeking a win, the Saints need it more.  Who will be hungrier Sunday afternoon?  After last week, the Black and Gold look like they’re starving.

The New Orleans Saints saw major improvements a week ago.  They look to keep it going in Indianapolis.  With a weak stretch of schedule ahead, the Saints know this is their best shot at a turnaround.
