The New Orleans Saints (5-8) have only two games remaining following Monday night’s matchup with Detroit (4-9) with games against Jacksonville and at Atlanta left, what will the final chapter be written about with it comes to closing the book on the 2015 season
I can’t think of a week in which there is so much of it at such contrasting styles. The Saints enter week 5 coming off of a prime time win in a manner that QB Drew Brees said was a character building one for the team. Philadelphia on the other hand is 1-3 following a division loss and fans want their head coach’s head on a platter, and national media are penning columns about how their needs to be a change at quarterback.
Just who are the 2015 New Orleans Saints? You’re guess is as good as mine and yes I’m paid to cover and analyze the team. That’s the point. I honestly believe the coaching staff led by head coach Sean Payton, doesn’t really know what they have.
The New Orleans Saints look to do something they haven’t done this season. Win on the road. They’ll have to do it against (3-4) Carolina in a game would give the winner sole possession of first place in the NFC South.
It took a bit longer than expected but the New Orleans Saints picked up their first win of the season last week in the comforts of the Superdome. A 20-9 win over an undermanned Vikings offense left players answering questions on if it was an ugly win and fans feeling unsatisfied. A win is a win though and now it’s on to the prime time lights of Sunday Night Football.
