This the stretch I have dreading all season. The next 3 games are against the Falcons, Giants and Lions.with a combined record of 17-7. I wish we were 7-2 and not 6-3 at this point. We could be 6-6 by the end of this stretch. However, the goood news is the Saints being 9 - 3 after this stretch would give them the tie breakers against all three teams, which are in playoff contention. This stretch is vital to the Saints playoff chances this season.
