After winning three-straight games and their last four out of five, the New Orleans Saints are starting fresh in the the second half of the season at 4-4.

It’s no secret this team looked quite off-key to begin the year.  However, with both the offense and defense (minus last week) coming together, the Saints are in a prime position to turn this season around in hopes of making a run at the NFL playoffs.

With an especially weak schedule ahead for the once-struggling Saints, a shot at the postseason isn’t all that far-fetched.  Next up on the agenda is the 1-6 Tennessee Titans.

While no team, even Tennessee, should ever be underestimated, New Orleans will have no excuse to not come out on top.  But in order for the Black and Gold to comfortably secure a victory in their clash with the Titans, they’ll need to ‘bring the wood’, especially these five players.
