The Saints are ranked No. 3 in the NFL going into this season, but where does each of their separate sides of the ball rank?
The New Orleans Saints are once again put in the top five teams with the highest chance to win the upcoming Super Bowl. They have been here before and finished badly in the same year so things could get ugly — quick after the team locks up a postseason berth.
The greatest aspiration that any team has is to win a Super Bowl. In Saints’ history, only one team has been able to win the Lombardi trophy for the city of New Orleans, Louisiana, and that was the 2009 team, one that many current Saints were on.
Last year, the team was in the same position. They had a great team with high hopes. The regular season proved just that. After finishing with a franchise-tying record 13-3 season, the Saints were bound for the Super Bowl.
Those dreams ended quickly, though, when they got knocked out of the wild card round of the playoffs by the six seeded Minnesota Vikings. Because of the great team that they currently have, aspirations are high for this season.
While they are ranked No. 3 in the NFL, let’s take a look at where their offense, defense, and special teams rank among other teams this season.
