Are we one Falcons loss away from being able to control our own destiny?
Our common games are tied, so it will then go to conference. We have 3 AFC losses and they only have 1 (or two if they lose to KC), so we'd win.If they lose to the panthers, then yes we have the upper hand.... but if they lose to a non-divisional opponent then we will have the same division record and it will go to the common games tie breaker (not sure who wins that one)... all of this assuming we win out and they lose to us + 1 more.
In most seasons, I'd prefer to see us not win meaningless games, but with how close this team is, I'd really like to see us end the year on a roll, even if we don't make the playoffs.Let's be real here. I can see the Saints winning 3 out of the last 5,winding up 8 & 8 and picking somewhere in the 14-20 range in next years draft. Still not bad considering the start of the season.
