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

Falcons square off at the Kitties Litter Box in their first division game so this a no loss game for the saints. Some one will take 2nd place and set up the the final months for the division title run with the saints.

Putting the Falclowns a full game back is huge having stole a road win against the Kitties already. That means our destiny is in our own hands. If the kitties have plans in stealing the division they will have to do it in the Dome.

Keep banging away into the month of December and prep yourself for two huge games against the falcons.

Welcome to The First True MUST WIN Game for the saints
Carolina has not really had offensive problems in the dome. We better not go into that game limping.

I am not worried about Philadelphia getting to a sb. Wentz has no playoff experience.

Atlanta almost lost to the jets. They find ways to lose to average teams when things don't go their way. They could lose to Darren McFadden, because he ran wild on them two years ago.
