(Last week: 8-8 or 9-7)
THEY DID IT ON THE ROAD!!!
What, win? Yeah, that too. But also, play their best game of the season so far. And they did it a scant five days after their other best game of the year.
These past two games are what every Saints fan expected coming into this year. Both sides of the ball, though not without their weaknesses, look very much alive. And in the NFL, momentum counts. I expect New Orleans to stay somewhat uneven, but with a three-week home stand ahead and the road monkey off their backs (and a favorable schedule in general), running away with the division and a playoff berth seem conceivable now.
What a weird season.
