Beating the Detroit Lions -- who didn't win a game last season -- by 18 points is one thing. To beat the Eagles -- who played in the NFC Championship Game last season -- by 26 points is something else. And that's why this convincing victory stamps the Saints as the top contender in the NFC.
Sure, it's early in the season, way too early to be crowning anybody. On the other hand, maybe the Saints will get even better as the season rolls along, although it's hard to believe they could be any better than they were against the Eagles, who manhandled Carolina 38-10 on opening day.
