Playoffs: So Far, So Good

Good morning Saints fans!!!! It's Monday morning and every second that passes is one second closer to kickoff on national television tonight. Week 12 is now in the books with the exception of the Saints game tonight. I figured I would try and put a little sunshine in your morning coffee today before the big game. Here is a look at the current NFC South standings.


NFC South Standings

W L T PF PA
Tampa Bay
8 3 0 250 200
Carolina 8 3 0 257 180
Atlanta 7 4 0 276 226
New Orleans 5 5 0 266 249

 


 

Last week we took a look at the Saints chances of winning the division and making the playoffs by projecting wins and losses to each remaining divisional game. Assuming the Saints win tonight and continue to win out they will still be on course to top the division. Of course the Saints will have an opportunity for a wildcard  but a division championship is still attainable. A win tonight would make next weeks matchup against the now first place Bucs very important.

Below is an updated visual representation of last weeks season projections and the Saints possible road to a championship. Yellow represents the game turned out as projected. Red represents a negative deviation from the projection. Green represents a better than expected outcome that helps even further. There is no red yet.
