NEW ORLEANS — Saints coach Sean Payton is trying not to let New Orleans' latest bout with key injuries undermine his club's Super Bowl aspirations.

A pair of starting defensive linemen who are both former first-round draft choices — end Marcus Davenport and tackle Sheldon Rankins — left last week's loss to San Francisco with what turned out to be season-ending injuries.

But as the Saints (10-3) prepare to meet Indianapolis (6-7) on Monday night, they do so having already demonstrated how resilient they can be without prominent players in the lineup.

The San Francisco 49ers held the first seed for just a week before they choked, somehow losing to the Atlanta Falcons only a week after they beat the New Orleans Saints. That big mistake cost them in the NFC playoff seedings, dropping them from the first seed to the fifth.

It also opens the door a little wider for the Saints to march back to the top of the standings. Right now, the Saints are the third seed. They’re in a race for a top two seed with the 49ers, Seattle Seahawks, and Green Bay Packers, though the Saints are guaranteed to finish no worse than third.

So how can the Saints get that coveted first seed? Even if they win all three of their remaining games, they’ll need some help to get it.

Saints QB Brees chasing NFL history again in prime time

NEW ORLEANS (AP) — Drew Brees has a knack for making history when the only NFL game to watch is being played inside the Superdome.

There was the Sunday night in 2012 when Brees' 40-yard pass to Devery Henderson gave him touchdown passes in 48 straight games, eclipsing a mark set by Hall of Fame quarterback Johnny Unitas half a century earlier. That streak finally ended at 54 games — a mark which still stands.

Six years later, on a Monday night in the dome, Brees broke Peyton Manning's previous career record of 71,940 yards passing in even more spectacular fashion: a 62-yard touchdown pass to then-rookie Tre'Quan Smith.

Brees entered this weekend three touchdowns shy of breaking Manning's career touchdowns passing record of 539 as the Saints prepared to host one of Manning's former teams, the Indianapolis Colts, on Monday night. ...

The New Orleans Saints remain the No. 3 seed after Sunday's NFC games wrapped up, but there was some definite moving and shaking in the rest of the playoff picture.

Before Sunday's slate, the San Francisco 49ers had the No. 1 seed, but a wild touchdown play by the Atlanta Falcons and wide receiver Julio Jones gave the Falcons the win, giving the 49ers their third loss of the year.

I turned on my computer Friday night, purely out of boredom. That usually means seeing what’s going on in New Orleans via posts on Facebook. I saw a post of an news article from longtime friend Ken Trahan of Crescent City Sports.

Former Saints linebacker Vaughan Johnson had died. I was stunned, shocked and sad. I know Ken is the ultimate professional and one of the most respected sports writers in the region, but I had to look everywhere to quell my disbelief.

For Drew Brees and Thomas Morstead, that Sunday in February of 2010 is a moment they'll remember for the rest of their lives.

"Walking together forever" is how the Saints describe the fraternity of players who delivered the city its only Lombardi Trophy, 10 seasons ago.

But for current Saints players like 22-year old Deonte Harris, that day is something they don't have any recollection of at all.

Harris responded this way when asked what he remembers about the...

There are five late games. Of special interest to us for playoff seeding, will been our favorite NFC South foe the Atlanta Falcons. The rest of the games don’t particularly affect our playoff standings but if ever there was a time you could pull for the Falcons, this is the week. Falcons win and the 49ers drop. Also the Falcons potentially lower their order in the draft. A win-win in my opinion.

The late games are:

Falcons at 49ers

Browns at Cardinals
