Revised Saints prediction, part XII

8-8

(Last week: 6-10)

If the Saints play like they did for three quarters tonight, they will win the division. The inability to close is a genuine concern for this team — and I think if they lose one or both of the next two games, that will be why. But both sides of the ball showed tonight that they are capable of fire — in Chicago, no less. Raymond James Stadium, by comparison, seems a very conquerable venue at this point. 

But the Saints' more immediate challenge is against the Falcons, a game that may decide everything. If the Saints can remember how to win in the Superdome, they'll most likely apply that knowledge to their playoff game.

Rise up, New Orleans!
