As we rapidly approach playoff time in the NFL, the last week of the regular season has five games that Saints fans should be interested in.
As the playoffs quickly approach, there is a multitude of scenarios in which teams can get different seeds. In fact, the Saints could just all the way to the No. 1 seed. If they stay No. 2, they could play one of three teams.
There is a lot riding on Week 17, the last week of the regular season. There is especially a lot that WhoDat Nation should be interested in for playoff implications. Here are the games that Saints fans need to keep their eye on in Week 17.
(12-3) Green Bay Packers @ (8-7) Chicago Bears
As a Saints fan, we are rooting for the Chicago Bears. Both of these teams have a lot on the line. If the Bears win, they lock a playoff spot. If the Packers win, they lock the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC. The game being at Chicago should give them a little help.
This will be the most important game of the week for the Saints. It starts the whole scenario off. The Bears need to win; if they don’t, they’re out. They do face an uphill battle against the Packers who demolished them 41-25 earlier this season.
