Saints sliding after slew of setbacks

METARIE, La.-- The New Orleans Saints have lost three of four games, and in the process, relinquished their once-firm hold on the NFC South title and No. 2 seed in the playoffs.

Thanks to their most recent setback, a 17-13 final-seconds loss to the Carolina Panthers last week, the Saints (10-5) no longer control their own destiny going into the season finale with the Tampa Bay Bucs (4-11) on Sunday in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
The Panthers now have an opportunity to take the second seed the Saints began eyeing back on Dec. 2 when they were pummeled 34-7 by the Seattle Seahawks to start their current slide.
Still, the Saints know they have two things to play for in Sunday's game with the Bucs.

11-5 and 5-1 in the division with a win this week at home against the Bucs. Makes me happy.

This is incorrect. We win and we are in. That is called controlling your own destiny as far as I am aware.

Not controlling it is when you need someone else to lose to get in.

Like Arizona having to win and we get beat by the Bucs. If we both win,we are in, I'm not sure how it would work if we both lose.
