Few expected them to drop their first four games.

Few expected them to get back in the playoff hunt.

They did both.

Proving again that truth is often stranger than fiction, the New Orleans Saints have rebounded from a horrible start to win four of their last five games, capping the run Sunday with a thrilling 31-27 victory over the Atlanta Falcons inside the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Of course, to reach the postseason, the Saints still have plenty of work to do. If the season were to end today, they’d be the No. 9 seed, three spots shy of the playoffs.

Also, the road ahead isn’t easy. Three of New Orleans’ next four games are away from the Superdome, beginning with Sunday’s trip to Oakland.

Speaking of which, the Raiders could be a troublesome team. They’re only 3-6, but quarterback Carson Palmer is having a nice year, and although the defense has under-performed, it’s talented enough to excel in spots. And the Saints are coming down from an
emotional high after beating the previously undefeated Falcons.

In other words, this game could be a trap.

The Saints have to make sure it isn’t.
