The New Orleans Saints are enjoying their bye week, and fans can somewhat relax at the midpoint of the season. At 7-1, Sean Payton’s squad is very much a Top 5 team, and are in position to make a good run for the first or second seed in the NFC. However, they’ll have to wrap up their division first, and November features four NFC South matchups that could make it happen.

FanPulse is back with an interesting national question, which asks whether the Patriots will lose first or the Dolphins will win first. Miami has the Jets, Colts, and Bills for their next three games, while New England has the Ravens, Eagles, and Cowboys. What say you?

Current Confidence Level - 100% (previously 100%)

The return of Drew Brees was met with criticism from many, but it turned out to be the right move for the Saints. They dismantled the Cardinals with ease last Sunday, as Brees showed little to no rust in his first appearance since Week 2. The best part of his return was how dominant the defense played. Although the Saints made no trade moves before the league’s deadline, they are still among the top favorites in the NFL.
