NEW ORLEANS — The Saints are playing so well, they were not thrilled with having a week off, even though it occurred at what normally is the perfect time.
Coming off a bye halfway through the season, New Orleans will take a six-game winning streak into its home matchup with Atlanta on Sunday. The most recent two were dominant — a 36-25 win at Chicago in which the Bears scored two touchdowns in the final 2:31, followed by a 31-9 victory at home against Arizona.
