Thumbs up From SI Power Rankings Week 5

2.The good news for the Saints is that after this week's trip to Tampa Bay -- the third leg of an already successful three-game road swing -- half of this season's away schedule is done and in the books. The even better news? If New Orleans can get past the Bucs and improve to 5-1, a 7-1 mark at midseason looks like a virtual cinch, with Indianapolis at home and St. Louis on the road to close out October.

I hate the back-to-back-to-back road games. That 3rd in a row is brutal and often not very pretty. I think statistically its almost always a loss.

I'm curious, do any other NFCS teams play a 3rd straight road game against a division opponent?

EDIT: Carolina is the only other NFC South team that even has 3 straight road games.

Tampa and Atlanta don't have 3 straight on their schedules.

Thanks NFL.

What does it matter? In order to be the best you have to beat the best.

Atlanta had it last year if I am not mistaken. Pretty sure they won all three, too.

Our team bonds on the road and can play very enthusiastically against another division foe. I don't believe that we lose any advantage other than the 12th man.
