Lady Luck + Karma + Voodoo + Marie Laveau + Minimal Injuries
We had it all back in that fateful game against the Colts.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

I would prefer Carolina beats Atlanta Sunday, even though they are closer to the Saints than Atlanta is.

That is because Atlanta plays the Cowboys at home the following weekend... and Dallas will apparently be without its chief weapon, Ezekiel Elliott. Without Zeke, I don't have much hope for a Cowboys victory over Atlanta.

The Saints play at Buffalo that same weekend... and that is going to be a tough one for our boys to win.

I think Dallas will be just find without Elliot, and particularly against Atlanta, but I'm probably in the minority.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

Saints favored by 7, which is less than last week. A little surprising.

today's fun fact: last week's 8 point win margin was the smallest all season long, win or lose.
I guess it only seems like every game is close

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

FYI - I'm watching this supposedly invincible Bills team getting rolled over on TNF by a Jets team that ain't much to brag about.

The Bills defensive backfield looks like it's getting ripped and beat down week after week.

What's worse is the Jets are running all over them.
I'm liking our chances in that game more and more after watching TNF tonight.

Re: The First True MUST WIN Game

I wish Winston was a full health for this game. Win or lose, it would have given us a real gauge of how good we really are. A win is a win but our last two were a lot more difficult than it should have been. There isn't a team left on our schedule that we can afford to overlook.
