We are now eleven games through the season and the Saints are 8-2. Here are the top three performers for the NFC South’s best team.

The New Orleans Saints have one of the best teams in the NFL. Recently, they just proved their dominance over their own division by beating all three other teams at least once (and they beat their biggest competitor Tampa Bay twice).

On top of taking over the division, they took over the conference last week. Going 8-2, they have the best record in the NFC right now. They are trailed slightly by the 7-3 Los Angeles Rams, Green Bay Packers, and Seattle Seahawks.

When you look at the NFL as a whole, they currently rank No. 3. There are two AFC teams — the Pittsburgh Steelers (9-0) and the Kansas City Chiefs (9-1) — who have a better record than the best NFC team — New Orleans (8-2).

With a record that good, they either have a very talented roster or a very lucky streak. New Orleans has the perfect mix. However, they have some very talented players. Here are the top three players for the black and gold this season so far.
