According to the consensus, the New Orleans Saints not only crack the top five; they came in at No. 3 ahead of any other NFC team in the NFL.
The New Orleans Saints ended last year with one of the most disappointing demises of a Super Bowl contender in the last couple of years. Not only did they lose out on the No. 2 seed to the Green Bay Packers, but they also missed the bye week.
Being out of the playoffs early has given the team more time in preparation for the upcoming season in which they are once again heavy favorites to win the Super Bowl. The team had an amazing offseason in comparison to other top-tier franchises.
They added Emmanuel Sanders, Malcolm Jenkins, and Cesar Ruiz. They didn’t let go of anyone that left a hole in the roster. The Saints triumphed with arguably the best offseason in the NFL.
