Its usually smart to. But especially for a team like the Saints that is usually mediocre on the road

I'd take Texans even though they are on the road. These two are good.

Patriots the obvious choice, unless saving them.

I might mull over picking Cincinnati though.

The bigger question is WHY would you use the Pats this early in Survivor??? They have 5-star future value. They play Miami 2x late in the season and play Indy. Wouldn't use them before week 10.

I definitely understand this strategy, but for my third year playing Survivor, I want to make it far enough to have painted myself into a corner by already using all the good teams. Sounds like a good problem to have rather than getting bounced out by Week 5. I went with Chicago and now New England.

After all that, watch them lose.

If you are playing just for pride I understand this strategy. Once $$$ becomes involved in a winner take all pool, that strategy goes by the wayside.

Saints are actually one of the best teams on the road the last three years. I want to say I head detellier say they were 16-8.

This plus the fact the Giants are huge favorites early in the season, and coming off a few extra days rest

I thought the Saints at home against the Redskins would have been the biggest lock.

Also teased them 13 points to replace my Florida State game that got rained out, and still lost at +5.5!!!

Doesn't matter if you're talking about history or just this week. There is now way in hell that Dallas over Seattle IN Seattle is the biggest lock or even a lock.

The Saints have one of the best road records in the league over the last few years.

Houston is a serious super bowl contender and Miami is contending for a #1 pick this year. So ya I'd say it's a bigger lock then Arizona at New England.
