I know what you're thinking, "The Saints?!?"
Yes, as a matter of fact... The Saints are the best road team in the NFL.
Certain fans looking to make themselves feel better about a certain upcoming game are harping on the fact that, during this season, the Saints are 5-3 on the road.
In case you forgot, we lost...
- Week ONE to the other "best team in the NFL"
- Week SIX to the Bucs before their shutdown... the same week we lost our head coach in the first quarter
- Week EIGHT to the second worst team in the league... no excuses, it sucked... hard
So... We've only won 62.5% of our road games.
But, as any junior mathmatician will tell you, that's an extremely small sample size. So, let's expand that a little bit.
In the last three seasons, we've played 26 away games... 8 regular season games per season, one playoff game, and one Super Bowl.
We've won 18 of those 26 games - aka 18-6.
No team in those three seasons has a better road record!
Sample size still too small for ya?
Let's expand it to the last five seasons. Where do we rank then?
Third in the NFL on the road in the last five season. Yes, that's right... Third!
So, let's put all this junk to rest, shall we?
