Are the Saints the best team in the NFL?

+

With the exciting season this year, as they have been a juggernaut on offense, which is pretty standard for the New Orleans Saints organization since Sean Payton arrived in 2006, they have characteristically been a top 5 offense in the league. But they haven’t had a defense that has allowed less than 20 ppg since the 2010 season, when they got shocked by the Seahawks. This season, behind defensive coordinator, Rob Ryan, they have been amazing, especially with their underrated excellent pass coverage. Taking teams to another level of desperation when trying to put points on the board. So why do I think the Saints are the best team in the NFL this year? Because they have the complete package from top to bottom, they are 2nd in scoring. They play a nasty, physical defense, as they give up only 18/ppg. They have an obviously elite QB, who can make no name players relevant. And make good players great. The game plan they have now is potent and powerful, with a tight defense, and an overpowering offense, which is essentially the same style they played so well with the Super Bowl season.
