New Orleans Saints playoff tickets were a sure thing before the Saints game against the Falcons on Monday Night Football but where the Saints fit into the playoff picture was still uncertain. The Atlanta Falcons still had a shot at the NFC South, needing back to back wins on their end and back to back losses by the Saints. But Drew Brees was having none of it. The New Orleans Saints exploded in the second half to lock down a 45-16 victory over the Falcons, gaining an NFC South Championship and a #3 seed in the playoffs. The Atlanta Falcons will likely be in the playoffs as a #6 seed, meaning we could very well see the Saints and Falcons again in the first round of the NFL Playoffs.
Along the way the Saints managed to get some other things done, namely establishing Drew Brees solidly in the NFL MVP race as he topped the all time season yardage record of Dan Marino with a game left to go. With that game coming against a vulnerable Carolina Panthers defense odds are that Brees will add another 300 to his 5, 087 yards. Needless to say, Saints Playoff tickets are once again causing a stir around New Orleans as the combination of a Saints offense that seems unstoppable and a Saints defense that seems to be jelling late in the season pushes Saints Playoff tickets into any Super Bowl conversation.
