On Thanksgiving Day the Saints get their revenge against the “Dirty Birds.” The Black and Gold thoroughly dominate the Falcons 30-13. Additionally, the Saints’ defense continues to be the story for 2017. Vonn Bell and Delvin Breaux both score on interception returns. Unquestionably, the Saints look to be the better team on this day.

For the most part, the Saints are now rolling again. After Saints fans were getting worried at 5-5, the team has now won two games in a row. In the future, the Saints play three out of the last four at home. Once again, December will have to play out till we find out what this team is made of.

The good thing upcoming is the Saints play two perennial cellar dwellers in Buffalo and Chicago. Regrettably, the one road block will the weather in late December in Buffalo. In Buffalo, the weather could be anywhere. And the Saints will need to win that game.

Other that that, the Saints will face the last two games against division foes. If the Saints can go into those games at 9-5, then a split would most likely be enough to at least secure a Wild Card berth. Who Dat Nation would be more than happy with that after three 7-9 seasons back to back.
