I bring you a small smattering of Saints and NFL-related links and tweets on this No Saints Game Sunday.
The Saints didn't get any early help from their NFC South mates to bring down the teams ahead of/even with them in the NFC playoff race, but the games were lively (see Lagniappe links below). In the late slate of games, we have Atlanta taking on Tennessee, and the Cardinals are currently only down six to the 49ers, so we may still have some good news this weekend while the Saints sit idle.
