It's go time. After a long mini-bye-week following our Jenksgiving Day Miracle Victory over Dallas, we are finally ready to take the field in Cincinnati today.
Facing a team that has lost eight in a row, we are sincerely hoping that they are not due for a win against us, and that our boys are prepared for the weather conditions.
Will it be messy for the Saints? (TO thinks so.)
Or will it be a Quiet Storm of the Saints making it nasty for Cincinnati? (I'd like to see this.)
Make the jump to start your pre-game reading and preparations.
