Revised Saints prediction, part XI


(Last week: 7-9)

Any readers I have left might notice that I'm writing these predictions earlier and earlier. Next week's might be out before the game.

The 2014 Saints don't want to play anymore. Your guess is as good as mine as to why, given that they're being handed a playoff berth on a platter made of silver mined by the least-subtle deity in existence. As I said earlier in the season, something must be happening behind closed doors that will eventually merit a magazine cover and perhaps its own Wikipedia entry. This group of talent should not be playing with this little consistency or heart. There's a reason for it. We just have to find out what it is.

Given their allegedly easy schedule and the bizarre fact that they only win on the road all of a sudden (and have two chances left to do so), they will probably win one of those and still make the playoffs somehow.

That doesn't change the fact that this is a very diseased football team at the moment.
