The New Orleans Saints are busy getting prepared for the upcoming season. They had a rough offseason, losing their over-decade-long quarterback Drew Brees who is now going to be on his way to the Hall of Fame.

They lost a lot of the team they had last year because of the cap situation. However, they also signed some players that will give them a burst of life going into the 2021-2022 season. They have odds at +2500 to win the Super Bowl.

Looking through the offseason into next year, the Saints are going to need these three things to come to fruition to win the 2022 Super Bowl.

There are eight teams with higher odds to win the big game so they are working with their backs against the wall. Sean Payton has been in that situation before and knows how to handle that pressure.

This year will be no different.

When you look at last year, some things were off that prevented them from making the most out of their season. This year, these three things are going to need to happen for New Orleans to make a run at what most people consider an improbable chance.
