New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons Preview and Prediction

Despite the Saints’ two-game winning streak, their slim hopes for a wild card spot died before last week’s kickoff of their eventual home victory over Tampa Bay. Instead, New Orleans will spend the first day of 2017 trying to deny its archrivals a bye in the first round of the postseason. The Saints also can finish at .500 with a win in Atlanta.

The Buccaneers need a season sweep of the Saints to remain in contention for the NFC South title
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

Despite New Orleans’ victory in Arizona last Sunday, Atlanta’s victory over San Francisco ended the Saints hopes of winning the NFC South. They still have a mathematical shot a wild card, but need to win their final two games and hope the Redskins, Packers and Buccaneers all lose in Weeks 16 and 17.

The Saints are plummeting toward their third straight non-winning season. They have dropped four of their last five games. While the defense improved in keeping opponents at 28 or fewer points per game in the last eight, the offense has been limited to 23 or fewer in six of those contests. New Orleans trails Atlanta and Tampa Bay in the NFC South by three games and has lost to both already.

New Orleans enters Sunday’s game against Tampa Bay with its playoff aspirations on life support. The Saints’ offense sputtered, managing just 13 points in last week’s loss at home to Detroit. The Lions also put an end to Drew Brees’ streak of throwing a touchdown pass at home at 60 games, an NFL record.

On Thanksgiving Day, Detroit (7-4) pulled out yet another come-from-behind victory to grab first place in the NFC North. The Lions have won six of their last seven and every game this season has been decided by seven points or less.

New Orleans enters Thursday night's game following a crushing defeat at home. Victory seemed nearly secured following Drew Brees’ 32-yard touchdown pass to Brandin Cooks to tie the score with less than a minute and a half remaining.

Denver Broncos vs. New Orleans Saints Preview and Prediction

Denver cruised out of the starting blocks of this season to 4-0. Then the Broncos hit some bumps in the road in their quest to repeat as Super Bowl champions. They have dropped three of their last five games. More disconcerting is that two of their losses occurred within the AFC West, the division that they have won each of the past five seasons.

Seattle travels to New Orleans to face the Saints in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome for the first time since 2010. If someone had not watched the Seahawks' previous game but only saw the final score, bewildered reactions must certainly have resulted.
