Things couldn't have gone better for the Saints on Sunday.



By defeating the Tampa Bay Buccaneers -- coupled with the Los Angeles Rams (11-2) losing to the Chicago Bears (9-4) -- the Saints (11-2) won their second-straight NFC South division title and recaptured first place in the NFC on Sunday night......

Remaining schedules...

The Saints finish at Carolina, vs. Pittsburgh and vs. Carolina again.

The Rams' last three games of the regular season are at vs. Philadelphia, at Arizona and vs. San Francisco.

Any combination of Saints win-Rams loss or Saints loss-Rams win in the final three weeks will cause another shuffle at the top of the NFC.

Can they finish???

Not all. A Rams loss to the Eagles Sunday and a Saints win against the Kitties Monday virtually locks up the #1 seed with the Saints having a 1.5 game lead with 2 to go. No change in the positioning at all.

Of course the Saints should just channel their inner Al Davis: JUST WIN BABY!!!

The Saints have a 100% chance of winning out while the Rams only have a 10% chance. 17-2 Baby!!!













Ok... this is more likely.
The Rams 85% chance win out. The Saints 20% chance at best.

^^^ yes, the magic number is 3. Theoretically we could clinch vs Pittsburgh and start the subs vs Carolina for the last game, just like in, um, what year was it? Oh yeah, 2010

We canít slip up in the next 3. Go 2-1 and Rams go 3-0. Rams get #1.
Just saying, it may be hard to beat the Panthers 5 times in a row.
And the Steelers play really well against good teams.
