3 reasons the New Orleans Saints have the easiest road to the Super Bowl
The NFL playoffs are here and the wait is over. The New Orleans Saints have their eyes on a Super Bowl and anything short will be a disappointment.
After finishing their season with a 13-3 record, the New Orleans Saints landed themselves the No. 3 seed in the NFC. They barely didn’t get the No. 2 seed because of conference losses that Green Bay and San Francisco didn’t have many of.
Because of that, they missed out on the first-round bye and will have to play the No. 6 seeded Minnesota Vikings on wild card weekend this week. They will be hosting them in New Orleans so the game should be easy, but it is the playoffs and we must not take anything for granted.
With a win on wildcard weekend, the New Orleans Saints will be matched up with the Green Bay Packers, the No. 2 seed in the NFC. Because of missing out on home-field advantage too, that game would be played in Wisconsin forcing the Saints to go on the road.
With a win over Minnesota, they would be on the road for the remainder of their time in the playoffs. Should they go into Wisconsin and beat Green Bay, they would then go to their fourth NFC Championship game in franchise history.
They would most likely meet the winner of a Seattle Seahawks v. San Francisco 49ers matchup. They have beaten Seattle before, but the last time they played San Francisco is was an offensive bombshell of over 80 combined points.
The next game with a win would be Miami for Super Bowl LVI. The most likely candidates for the Super Bowl from the AFC are the Baltimore Ravens, Kansas City Chiefs, and New England Patriots. The New Orleans Saints could be your next Super Bowl champions.
Here is why they have the easiest road to Super Bowl LVI.
