What is the possibility the New Orleans Saints get at least the No. 3 seed?

With the current projections where they are, the Saints are the No. 3 seed. The New Orleans Saints have already won their division, therefore, they are guaranteed at least a top-four seed. With the Philadelphia Eagles at 8-7, there is no chance that the New Orleans Saints drop.

The three seed is at least locked up with the division victory. The New Orleans Saints have worked hard this year to overcome the injuries that they have sustained to have no less than a No. 3 finish in a heavily powerful NFC lineup.

Should they finish in the No. 3 seed, they will play the Minnesota Vikings in New Orleans. The Vikings lost last week to the Green Bay Packers dooming any chances they had at moving up to the No. 5 seed.

The No. 3 seed would provide a nice road to the NFC championship; however, they would only have home-field advantage for that one game against the Vikings then they would have to go on the road for the rest of the playoffs.

Probability of at least the No. 3 seed: 100%
