The New Orleans Saints punched their playoff tickets with a 42-17 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the Superdome today. Tonight’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles will determine where they go in the first round of the playoffs.
For the Saints, playing on the road in this atmosphere will be a huge challenge, especially if the game is in Philadelphia. While New Orleans is 8-0 at home in the Mercedes Benz Superdome, their road record is 3-5. The Saints offense relies heavily on Drew Brees and his adjustments at the line are crucial. Crowd noise hampers this aspect of New Orleans’ game.
The Saints are still one of the most dangerous teams in the NFL though. Their defense has made a surprising turnaround, Drew Brees has thrown for over 5,000 yards and 39 touchdowns. Sean Payton is known as a creative playcaller and Rob Ryan will make gambling calls with his defense. You can’t count out the Saints when all the marbles are on the line as they will be next week.
