Saints shrug off record-setting season, turn attention to Lions, Super Bowl
 
Detroit— Oddsmakers have spoken, and not favorably about the Lions' playoff chances.

The Saints, according to vegasinsider.com, were considered by noon Monday at 10.5-point favorite over the Lions for Saturday's 8 p.m. game at the Superdome in New Orleans.

After Sunday's 45-17 rout of the Panthers, Brees told reporters he's got a good feeling about the post-season because the franchise has experience on its side.

"We've been on this journey before," Brees said. "We know the feeling of winning a Super Bowl. There's nothing like it."

The Saints won the Super Bowl after the 2009 season. In three home playoff games under Brees, they're 3-0.

The Lions, meanwhile, haven't won a playoff game since 1991, when quarterback Erik Kramer led the Lions to a 38-6 first-round blowout of the Cowboys at the Pontiac Silverdome.

New Orleans's high-powered offense could pose a big-time problem for the Lions' defense, especially its banged-up secondary.

All of our attention should be on the Lions there up 1st. I really want our D to dominate and show the other playoff teams what they are going to be up against. I've got a good feeling that the last 5 weeks they are getting into a zone and are ready to show what they have been brought into New Orleans to do, shut down offenses and wreck havoc.
