The New Orleans Saints enter Week 10 sitting high and mighty as the NFC’s No. 2 playoff seed at 7-1, and the latest FanPulse results echo the confidence fans have in their team. Before we dive into that, one of the national questions of the week from SB Nation asked which fanbase needed a hug. The Jets edged out the Falcons. Other considerations were the Bengals, that team in Washington, and the Dolphins.

The other national question of interest asked which NFL team was a pretender, and the Saints even being on the list is beyond laughable considering how they’ve won games, but it’s good to see they’re at the bottom of the poll here. Meanwhile, the Bills apparently are suspect.

Current Confidence Level - 100% (previously 100%)

The Saints are back to being healthy, as Alvin Kamara, Tre’Quan Smith, Jared Cook and several other players are getting back in the mix for Sean Payton’s team. The month of November features four straight NFC South opponents, with the team playing the Falcons twice starting on Sunday (Thanksgiving being the other). It should be interesting to see how the Saints fare after their bye week, as it’s hard to suggest this is a team that will flop flat on its face.
