Speaking of elite offense with great defenses, what about the Saints? After starting 0-2 they've now ripped off 6 straight. While there is the question of just how impressive these wins are, I'm willing to roll with Brees safely here, just outside this top 5 still. Yes the win over the Bucs was impressive, but it wasn't surprising. The Bucs are bad, the Saints look good. Now this upcoming stretch will be extremely important in determining the fate of the Saints. The Bills are a solid team, but have started to stumble and it appears are a game away from choking what would've been a great playoff experience. The Redskins are a good team, capable of overwhelming teams who are not prepared for how good they really are. The Rams are a top 3 team as of right now. Even after that stretch, the Panthers and Falcons always play the Saints hard, and the Jets are a shockingly good team. If they hold strong against each these teams, and lose 3 or less possibly (as long as it's not NFCS losses), schedule this team with a home playoff game.
