Gus Kattengell’s Saints Report – Titans Game

Gus KattengellThe Saints look to win their 5th in a row on Sunday as they travel to Tennessee to take on the 7-5 Titans.

Two really specific story lines for me this week as we head into the week. One the Saints playing outside, and the other the Saints playoff scenarios. First, the Saints last played outside a very, very, very long time ago. Saints head coach Sean Payton details…

It’ll also be the last time the Saints play outside this season, as next week they play in Minnesota’s dome, and then close out the final two weeks against the Falcons and Panthers in the Superdome. Quarterback Drew Brees is looking at Sunday’s game as an opportunity to train and get ready for a much more important game that the team could be in next month. A game that will be played outside. See if you can hear him drop the hints about a certain city in Wisconsin…

The Titans do have the respect of the Saints in the locker room. Brees brought up how being an AFC team, the Saints only face the Titans once every four years, and being that their defense is pretty underrated, the Saints better be ready to a team that is currently on the outside looking in for a playoff spot.

The other story line is that the Saints can secure themselves a playoff spot with a win and some help. A Saints win and a Falcons loss, the Saints would win the NFC South. Atlanta is at Carolina. A Saints win, and a Bears or Lions loss, the Saints would clinch at least a Wild Card spot. Saints tackle Jermon Bushrod on the possibility that the Saints could punch a ticket into the postseason this weekend…

So how do I see it? Well Chris Johnson has rushed for over 100 yards in three of the last four games, games the Titans have won. QB Matt Hasselbeck passed all over the Saints the last time he faced them, last season in the playoffs with Seattle, remember? I expect a close game, perhaps even the Saints being down at halftime. Still see the Saints offense, which is playing ridiculous right now, being able to put up enough points to escape Nashville with a 27-24 win.
