1. Cards have a short week. Not much rest in between games, our matchup is the first game next weekend and they just finished a late sunday game.

2. Cards just expounded a ton of energy. Just came off a huge emotional victory and may not have enough to keep it going next week.

These are both very good points. I hope the SAINTS D is up for the challenge.

Re: Advantage Saints!

No reason to think Warner will not continue to play well. He will, but our healthy secondary will be able to cover his receivers better than GB's depleted secondary. We had better hope our front 4 can get better pass rush than GB did today though, or Warner will pick them apart regardless of who is playing corner.

My money (figuratively) is on the Saints. I like the focus on fundamentals this week, and I like the time off they have had. They needed a chance to take a breath after the crazy ride of the "perfect season" hype. They needed to refocus on what got them there, and that refocus is happening this week. I think we will see the team that we saw against the Patriots.

The Cards could be involved in the top two scoring games for post season.
