Why are the Saints even bothering to play?

ESPN has declared the Colts the winners. There is no way the Saints are going to get to Peyton Manning and he is going to eat up the blitz. I mean Peyton scores everytime he throws the football. And the Colts defense is the strongest in the NFL. I mean they must sack every QB everytime he drops to pass. Why aren't the Colts 75 point favorites? It seems to me from the way ESPN is talking the Saints will be down 21 by the opening kickoff. I know that the Colts have Peyton Manning, but we have Drew Brees. I know they have great DE, but neither of them have any more sacks than Will Smith. By the way didn't three of our offensive linemen make the Pro Bowl? Our secondary is healthy, theirs is not. We have a running game, they do not. We have more weapons than the Colts on offense and and not as dependent on the pass rush as the Colts. The Colts have very simple offensive and defensive schemes, the Saints have the most complex schemes in the NFL. Honestly, I would have made the Colts the favorite, because this is their second SB in four years, but they are beatable. If the Ravens would have had a passing game, they would have won. I believe the Colts managed only 17 points in that game and Peyton look terribly human in that game. And I am so tired of the excuses for the Vikings. They LOST. They didn't give the ball to the Saints, the Saints took the damn thing. With surer hands and more thinking they would have had 9 turnovers and 3 of the Viking scoring drives would not have happened.
