The best of the best
The Saints are the best 3-0 team in the league. How can I say that you ask? Especially with the way that New England and Miami are playing. Consider this:
The Saints are the only 3-0 team whose opponents have a combined winning record.
OpponentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ combined record for 3-0 teams as of Sunday night:
New Orleans 5-3
New England 2-6
San Diego 2-7
Further, every team the Saints have played has one loss ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â€Âœ the New Orleans Saints. Of course, that could change tomorrow night if the Rams beat the Bucs, but it wonÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢t change the fact that we will be the only team whose opponentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ combined record is above .500.
More impressive is the fact that the Saints first three opponentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ combined record from last season is 34-14 (.708). That is the highest opponentsÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢ winning percentage EVER for a 3-0 team in NFL history, according to ESPN.
TheyÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã¢Â„Â¢re good boys.
