Earlier this week, our national SB Nation reacts poll asked voters their thoughts on which team has the best outside shot of making the playoffs. The New Orleans Saints who are currently sitting at 8-8 came in 2nd place with 27% of the votes.
We also asked our readers their thoughts on if the Saints would make the playoffs. 79 % of voters said no, with 21% saying yes.
The Saints have two chances at making the playoffs. To win the division and earn the 4th seed, they need to defeat the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday AND see the Tampa Bay Buccaneers lose to the Carolina Panthers. To earn the 7th seed, the Saints will need to defeat the Falcons as well as have both the Seattle Seahawks and Green Bay Packers lose.
