METAIRIE, La. -- The New Orleans Saints are not taking it easy after clinching the opportunity to defend their Super Bowl title.

Not with the possibly of getting the No. 1 seed in the playoffs.

New Orleans clinched at least an NFC wild-berth berth with a 17-14 victory Monday night against Atlanta. If the Saints beat Tampa Bay (9-6) on Sunday in the Superdome and Atlanta loses at home to 2-13 Carolina, New Orleans will be the No. 1 seed. Otherwise, the Saints will be No. 5.

"We're going to be on a crash course for this week's game, period," coach Sean Payton said Tuesday. "Our focus is strictly on playing this game and knowing that there's still a lot at stake potentially.

"This is going to be a tough test for us, especially coming off of a Monday night game. Tampa is coming in and they're still in the hunt, and when you're in the hunt you're desperate. By this time next week we'll know where the chips are at and then you go forward."

If Atlanta is killing Carolina by the half, do we think about resting our starters?
