Earlier this week, we posted our weekly confidence poll to see how fans were feeling about the New Orleans Saints (7-8) and their chances at making the playoffs this season.
21% of voters feel that the team could still make a run at it. Unfortunately, the Saints are no longer in control of their chances. They would need to beat the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Sunday and the Atlanta Falcons next week AND see the Bucs lose to the Carolina Panthers next week. So, the fight for the NFC South will come down to the last two weeks of the season. It’s not impossible but the Saints will have an uphill battle to climb in order to be playing in the post season.
