I agree. I almost forgot about that one.
So if we win the toss, we choose to recieve, right? So we can get all these records out if the way early?

The records are unimportant. The Saints must play this as a regular game until it's clear that the #2 seed is out of reach and have nothing else to play for. This may be the mid 2nd quarter. It may not be until late into the 2nd half. It may not happen at all if the Rams catch a lucky break or three in the game.

Probably the best way for the Saints to ensure their position and safety from injury is simply to stomp on the Panthers early. Get up 21 or more points by the mid 2nd quarter, then look to start pulling the starters not because of the 49ers/Rams game, but because of the insurmountable lead.

But in any case, it's not about records. You can best believe that if the Saints were locked in at #2 or #3 at this point, that most starters would be sitting, and not playing.

The Saints have been to playoffs 4 of the last 5 years and a own a SB championship.

I can hardly believe this happened in my lifetime.

If no one gets hurt - its sheer genius!! Look at all the records we set.

IF someone does get hurt - worst move ever. The Super BOwl is more important than any record!!

This is one of those 50 one way answers and 50 the other way.
This is still a game. A regular season game.
#2 or #3 is a big difference.

And throwing for 5 TDs gives Brees the edge over Rodgers in season TDs, 46-45. When you're chasing an MVP award, every little helps.

Records are to be looked at after you pack up your lockers at the end of the season.

13-3 this week
14-3 next week

that is the only record to care about.

I agree with hagan.
Today is over. Great game. Good win. Good standing and energy and everything for the Saints. Well earned. Well deserved. Good season.
Taking the Saints attitude, this game is in the can. Moving on to next week.
One game at a time.
