After two consecutive losses, the New Orleans Saints are fighting for a berth in the postseason. As of Sunday morning, the Saints are mere hours away from either the No.2 seed in the NFC, a wildcard berth in the playoffs, or missing the postseason altogether. If the Panthers lose the early game, then a Saints win would give New Orleans the No.2 seed as champions of the NFC South. Otherwise, the Saints take a wildcard berth with either a win at home against the Buccaneers or a Cardinals loss in San Francisco.
Hopefully the Saints (10-5) know better than to treat this game against the Bucs (4-11) as a trap game. With a victory this afternoon, fans will be watching New Orleans play at least into January.
