The New Orleans Saints don’t have a great track record in the NFL playoffs; could this be another year that the season ends in disappointment?
No. 7 ranked Chicago is heading to New Orleans to take on the No. 2 ranked Saints in the Wild Card round of the NFL Playoffs. The Bears haven’t beaten the Saints since 2006. What makes us think there is a chance it could happen now?
Here are the top three reasons.
Neither one has really won a big game this year
Between the Saints and the Bears, they have only beaten one team that finished above .500 this year. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who the Saints beat twice and the Bears beat once, were the only team in the NFL that they beat that ended above .500.
Both teams also lost some bad games to some bad teams. However, the lack of experience from either side in completing big games is going to be a major flaw for both teams. Even though it is a downfall for both teams, it could hurt the Saints.
They typically don’t show up in the first game of the playoffs anyway. Therefore, they need all the help they can get. This would be a huge win if they could pull it out, but the fact that they don’t have a good track record this season in big games could hurt them.
