the Saints have the best road record in the NFL since 2009. Now 23-12.
I'm so glad this was finally mentioned.
The Saints are sitting at 5-1 going into a bye, with 2 very winnable games after. hey are two games the Saints will be the heavy favorite in, followed by a prime time game vs the Cowboys at home. This team easily, and should be, 8-1 after 9 games.
After that, comes the tricky part.
If the Saints somehow manage to go 2-1 over this stretch I think you can pencil them in for a top 2 seed. That would have them at 10-2 with CAR, @STL, @CAR and TB remaining. I would bet money on them winning 3 of these at a minimum.
I think we are looking at a 12+ team this season, if they can stay healthy. That was a tough game against New England, but the bye week should really help the team out a lot. The Seahawks will have a few more slip ups, the team is in good shape right now.
