The Saints will draw their toughest opponent of the year. The Arizona Cardinals come in at 11-2 riding high. Wide receiver Larry Fitzgerald comes in as the league’s leading wide receiver. Add that with the best defense in the NFL, and you’ve got a blowout. Saints are officially eliminated from the playoffs and lose their ninth game of the season. This loss will also guarantee a third straight losing season under Sean Payton.
