The Saints our biggest competition in the division this year?

Recommended Posts

Hopefully the formatting doesn’t go all wonky...

Had a thought occur to me while I was looking at who our division rivals play over the next few weeks. The Saints don’t have very many games where they won’t be favored. Take a look (wins in green):

                     CAR        NO        ATL        TB

Week 7:     @CHI     @GB      @NE     @BUF

Week 8:     @TB       vsCHI    @NYJ    vsCAR

Week 9:     vsATL     vsTB      @CAR   @NO

Week 10:   vsMIA    @BUF     vsDAL   vsNYJ

Week 11:   Bye         vsWAS   @SEA    @MIA

Week 12:   @NYJ    @LAR      vsTB     @ATL

Week 13:   @NO      vsCAR     vsMIN   @GB

Week 14:   vsMIN    @ATL      vsNO    vsDET

Week 15:   vsGB       vsNYJ    @TB      vsATL

Week 16:   vsTB       vsATL     @NO     @CAR

Week 17:   @ATL     @TB        vsCAR   vsNO

Record:       12-4       10-6          7-9        6-10

 

obviously anything can happen any week. Any one of these games could go the opposite direction. Notice that if things play out like I predict them, the Saints will be within striking distance of us, especially if they can keep us from winning in the Dome. That game is VERY important. 

I based the wins and losses on how the teams are playing right now. If someone collapses or catches fire, this could change drastically.

Regardless, ATL looks primed for a Panthers2016-type collapse and the Saints are playing really well at the moment. The Panthers have their work cut out for them if they intend on recapturing the division crown this year.

We have played great offenses and we are 9th in total defense.  Dunno, I think we are good atp.  Winning record the next 4 and we are good.

You have to think the Saints are a house of cards. One solid hit on Brees and the whole thing crumbles.

The Panthers biggest adversary right now are themselves.

I would say that but, they have a much improved run game and defense.

Brees threw for 186.  2 ints and a QBR of 33.7 vs the Lions and they still put up 52 points.  while the lions, scored 14 of their 38 off a punt return and a Brees pick 6
