NFC West Showdown
(8-7) Arizona Cardinals @ (9-6) Los Angeles Rams
As a Saints fan, we are rooting for the Los Angeles Rams. If it comes to the Saints getting the No. 2 seed in the NFC, I would much rather play the Chicago Bears than I would Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins, and the rest of the Cardinals. If LA wins, then they lock the No. 6 seed.
The Cardinals have the possibility of being without Kyler Murray in this game and the Rams are for sure without Goff as he had surgery on his thumb earlier this week. The last time the two teams played, the Rams came out on top. This game might be a little different though.
(11-4) Seattle Seahawks @ (6-9) San Francisco 49ers
As part of the three-part elaborate plan for the Saints to still get the No. 1 overall seed in the NFC, the team needs Seattle to pull off a win here. The Saints can’t win a 1-on-1 tiebreaker with the Packers so they need the Seahawks to be tied as well so it goes to conference record.
The last time these two teams played, the Seahawks put up 37 points and won by ten. However, that was without Garoppolo and Mostert. Most likely, the most injury battered team in the NFL is going to lose this game, which is what we want.
