It's dropping tonight. Hopefully the NFL doesn't give the Saints a brutal stretch like they have the past two seasons (home for SF, 4 days later in ATL with the bonus of going to Seattle after that stretch last season).
Worst case woukd be going to Chicago, Cleveland and Pittsburgh all in November/December. I want weather neutralized.
Week 13:*Sunday, Nov. 30, at Pittsburgh, 1 p.m I don't think Pittsburgh will be good, but the Saints lose weird ones. Loss.
Week 14:*Sunday, Dec. 7, Carolina, 1 p.m. Win,
Week 15:*Monday, Dec. 15, at Chicago, 8:30 p.m. I think they come up big in Chicago again. Win.
Week 16:*Sunday, Dec. 21, Atlanta, 1 p.m. Win
Week 17:*Sunday, Dec. 28, at Tampa Bay, 1 p.m. Never play well in Tampa. Loss
13-3. Win total might be a little high, but I don't see them losing in the Dome even against competition like GB and SF. Road games against Cleveland and Detroit worry me because the Saints usually lose one on the road that they shouldn't. The Chicago came could be troublesome, too.
Almost every team has a Thursday game. What I hate is a Sunday night game chased by a Thursday night game. What's worse is that it is on the road against a division rival...for the third straight year.
