New Orleans could win out and go to a Super Bowl
This is the route that all the fans want to happen. This is the direction that everyone thought their season was going to go. The Saints have one of the best teams that they have ever had, but for some reason, things are just not panning out.
It started with a loss to the Raiders than to the Packers. They bounced back with some wins against the Lions and Chargers. However, the win against the Chargers was far from pretty. In fact, they should have lost it handily.
Nonetheless, they are 3-2. Coming out of this bye week, they could still finish the year with a 14-2 record which would be better than the regular season they had last year. Even one more loss would put them at the same pace as last year and most likely winning their division.
New Orleans will most likely win their division. If not, they are in favor because of the expanded format of the NFL playoffs this year. This is the path that the black and gold will follow, even if all of the others are possibilities.
